What is a PPE Vending Machine?
Do you run the tool crib or supply room for your business? Are you researching ways that you can improve your inventory control processes, especially as they relate to PPE (personal protective equipment)? If so, you may have come across the term PPE vending machine in your research. But what exactly is this machine, and how can it help you?
A personal protective equipment vending machine operates very similarly to a typical vending machine you've used countless times in the past to purchase a can of soda or a bag of chips. However, instead of snacks and drinks, these machines can dispense gloves, masks, hard hats, goggles, and other PPE items your employees rely on to perform their jobs safely and efficiently. And instead of tracking purchase through the money inserted like a typical vending machine, a PPE vending machine uses robust software to accurately track the items removed from the machine, alert operators when supplies of a certain item are low, monitor items being used by each employee or job, and much more.
As you can see, a PPE vending machine not only makes it easy for your employees to access and obtain the PPE items they need to remain safe and productive at the workplace, it also can streamline your methods for monitoring and tracking the use of these items, optimize your purchasing processes, and more.
