Four Ways To Tough Out A Tough Month (In A Tough Workplace)
You’ve got a workplace to run, and we’re here to help! No matter what company you work for there are three fundamental workplace concerns: efficiency, safety and regulatory compliance.
Every company wants to ensure operations run smoothly, while also ensuring their workforce is protected and that health and safety regulations are being upheld. Here are our suggestions to maintain a business environment that upholds all the above.
Promote and Reinforce Safe Work Practices
Dangerous equipment and hazardous work areas should always be clearly labelled with attention-grabbing warnings. Safety signage plays an important part in every organisation, preventing injury and educating both guests and employees as to the hazards of their surroundings.
Protect Your Workplace Valuables
Whether you work in an office, or a warehouse, items can easily get misplaced or go missing - and there’s nothing worse than wasting time looking. Well there’s a simple solution that can put a stop to that – asset tagging! By tagging your valuables you can make sure items are easily and permanently identifiable and company equipment is returned if borrowed or taken outside of the workplace.
Using Avery Security Labels can prevent theft and help keep track of your assets. If you’re look for something a bit more durable to harsher environments try our Resistant Labels that are able to withstand water, oil, dirt, UV Rays and more!
Organise Your Supply Area
Going on a treasure hunt every time you need supplies? Save yourself, and your co-workers, time finding tools and stock by compartmentalising items based on common themes – e.g. ‘most used’. Not only will this benefit you with quicker identification but it will also make replenishing out of stock supplies easier.
Using our Ultra-Resistant Labels and our Design and Print Software you can create colour-coded labels that are resistant to abrasion, chemicals, water and temperatures in the range of -40c to +150c; making them perfect for the toughest of workplaces!
Keep a Running Track on Inventory
In many workplaces, especially warehouses, inventory is constantly being moved and equipment is constantly being used, it becomes hard to keep track of everything. A simple solution is generating barcodes or QR codes that can be scanned and kept track of using a digital database. This can assist in scenarios such as stock-take, workers checking out equipment or inventory being moved to a new location. If your inventory is automated, you can even program a trigger point which will alert you when supplies are running low so you can replenish your stock and avoid costly down-time waiting for supplies to arrive.
Using our White Resistant Labels you can securely label equipment and using our Design and Print Software you can easily generate your own Barcode or QR codes you can print yourself.
