Good morning. We hope you had a safe weekend. Workplace accidents and hazards don't wait around for your employees to have the right safety supplies and equipment in place to prevent or mitigate disaster. As a business manager who is responsible for your company’s safety supplies crib you have an awesome responsibility. Not only are the safety products in the crib expensive, a missing part could cause days or weeks of delay in your production.
One of the biggest challenges faced by Safety Supplies Crib Managers is the loss of control of the inventory. In order to maintain the control, you can:
- Secure the crib space,
- Take frequent inventory,
- Charge the losses to users,
- Implement a high-performance labeling system using scanable bar code labels.
- Enroll in Arbill's Safety In Stock™ program
Whatever you do, the bottom line is that you have to know what you have, where it is going and where it’s been.
Here are some strategies common in safety supplies crib management.
Free to Roam. Believe it or not, some companies have a free-to-roam system. If you need a safety product, you just go in and get it. This can get a little out of hand, so some give keys to only a select few.
Stocked and locked. Only safety supplies crib clerks have access to the safety products.
Count the inventory – Over and over again. Some companies cycle-count 3 – 5 times a week.
Automate your PPE replenishment - On-site vending machines allow for the tracking and automatic replenishment of commonly used Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and safety supplies.
