Like many other industries dependent on touch and interaction, manufacturing and industrial distribution look a little different during the pandemic.

A renewed focus on safety will require you to rethink your manufacturing processes in order to eliminate exposure points, while ensuring PPE and other critical supplies are easily accessible for employees. In today’s age, inventory management must not only be smart – but also safe.

Simple adjustments to your existing distribution process can turn what was once a high-touch experience, virtually touchless. As one of your most comprehensive and complete sources for inventory data, CribMaster can also be utilized to track and document compliance with safety procedures.

Create PPE Stations

Set up PPE stations at entry points or high-traffic areas using just a POU. This solution eliminates the need to repackage supplies to vend from a traditional machine, and can drastically cut down on wait times to receive PPE. Simply open boxes of PPE and have an attendant scan each items PPE Barcode before letting an employee take their approved items. PPE stations can also be set up outside of your tool crib to control traffic flow in and out.
