Resources for Every Step of the Way

Our solutions are suited for complex processes and facility environments that need specialized products for every step of the supply chain–as well as the departments that serve them.

Read below to learn how Seton’s manufacturing sensibilities result in solutions that cater specifically to organizations with process and facility environments like yours, including the main departments found in most manufacturing facilities.

Identification

Identification is not only crucial to meeting shipping deadlines, it’s also how your workers improve efficiency and stay productive throughout the facility. Don’t leave anything to chance. Bright, eye-catching inventory and quality control labels assist workers, shippers and receivers. Warehouse labels keep things moving more efficiently and productively in areas where people are moving fastest. There are four aspects of manufacturing identification:

1) Inbound Process

Our inbound process products serve critical tasks such as inventory and quality control, GHS labeling, and 5S productivity.

Communicating Hazards

Your facility contains complex equipment that workers need to safely operate. These workers execute multi-step processes for their jobs and do it all in harsh environments necessary to turn raw materials into finished products. And each task comes with a key regulation to meet. What does it take to keep all that functioning safely?

 

Slips, trips and falls comprise the second leading cause of workplace injuries. When it comes to outfitting your facility with safety messaging, you can’t skimp on the basics. Learn what it takes to communicate while avoiding the risk of sign pollution. There are four important areas when communicating hazards:

 

1) Communicate Slips, Trips, and Falls Hazards found on Walking Working Surfaces

2) Before Maintenance Confirm De-energizes Equipment

If the potential exists for the release of hazardous stored energy or for the re-accumulation of stored energy to a hazardous level, the employer must ensure that the employee(s) take steps to prevent injury that may result from the release of the stored energy.

The best way to tackle those challenges is through clear, bold communication between you and your employees. Turn to the Seton resources below to help.

Hazard Communication

Hazard communication is how manufacturing facilities alert workers of potentially dangerous chemicals present in the workplace. OSHA has developed a number of strict regulatory standards intended to retain and strengthen both the employees’ “right to know” and “right to understand.” There is one aspect to Hazard Communication.

1) GHS Hazard Communication (29 CFR 1910.1200)

The Globally Harmonized System is the new standard for chemical hazard identification. OSHA seeks to harmonize, on a global level, the classification of chemicals by their corresponding hazards.
