CASE STUDY: How to significantly improve safety when working at height

Read about the project of Scafftag at Bancroft, where working at height is much safer now thanks to status tagging system and lockout devices.

With 150 directly employed staff working on fast track fit-outs at any one time across the South East, health and safety has to be a priority for mechanical and electrical services company Bancroft. With increasing legislation and pressure for companies to achieve excellence in this area, Bancroft wanted to improve business performance through better management of its equipment in terms of safety, maintenance and location tracking.

The solution was a visual tagging system from equipment status management specialists, Scafftag – A Brady company. The wide range of Scafftag tagging systems makes the latest status of equipment clearly visible, where it is needed most. The tags are attached to each item of equipment providing specific details of inspections, maintenance work and asset ID number and location. Removing the insert from the holder means that any item of equipment can be instantly put into Do Not Use status. This extra level of protection allows managers and employees to make informed decisions rather than risk making assumptions.

CASE STUDY: Increase food and employee safety with pipe markers

Read how Brady Corporation helped its customer Woodlands Dairy to optimise food safety, workplace safety and efficiency with reliable and fully compliant labels and pipe markers...

Woodlands Dairy is one of the largest manufacturers of UHT milk in South Africa, marketed under their brand FIRST CHOICE®. Brady visited Woodlands Dairy several times to meet with senior management on how identification solutions could optimise food safety, workplace safety and operational efficiency.

Solutions: Compliant pipe markers and signs that stay attached and remain legible

Pipe marking appeared essential for workplace safety because it can quickly unveil any risks associated with a pipe’s hidden contents. Brady proposed its custom developed pipe-marking materials for food & beverage industries that comply with hygiene and safety requirements in food safety legislation. They are made out of non-toxic materials that stay firmly attached to pipes that are exposed to heat, cold and liquids. Their print and colour codes immediately inform employees where it matters about potential risks, urges to wear the proper protection and to take relevant precautions before opening a valve for example.

A section of the site was being updated and Woodlands Dairy decided to immediately implement floor marking. Floor marking helps create a highly visual workplace which offers increased efficiency and safety. Brady offered its highly reliable ToughStripe Floor Marking Tape. The tape can resist heavy foot and light vehicle traffic, does not need time to dry, and, unlike paint, does not release any chemicals or fumes that could threaten food production.

Woodlands Dairy also uses compact, hand-held BMP21-PLUS Label Printers from Brady to support ongoing safety and efficiency identification in the facility. The BMP21-PLUS is ideal for cable & component identification, including switches and fuses in electrical panels. A clear, reliable label quickly shows which circuit each fuse controls, and it leaves little room for error. Brady selected B-595 vinyl labels together with Woodlands Dairy. B-595 is a great all-round identification label with good adhesion to steel, powder coated metal, textured surfaces, polypropylene and glass. Exposed cables are identified with stainless steel tags and cable ties for ultra longevity and additional food safety. Stainless steel tags that would get into any food supply are easily picked up by metal detectors.

Results: Optimised food safety, workplace safety and efficiency

Woodlands Dairy has optimised food safety, workplace safety and efficiency by sharing vital information where it matters with clear and reliable signs, labels and pipe markers. “This is a really good product”, said Theo Oosthuizen, senior technician at Woodlands Dairy. “We have used other pipe markings in the past, but inevitably they faded. I would definitely recommend using Brady products again in future.”

Faster equipment safety inspections

By Brady Corporation

Brady’s SafeTrak makes time consuming paper based equipment inspections a lot faster. Planning, inspecting and reporting can be streamlined, customised and largely automated in the SafeTrak app to save time.

Digital support for equipment inspections

SafeTrak enables you to keep track of inspections digitally and eliminates the need to make time consuming duplicates, decipher hasty handwriting or search for lost inspection papers. At the same time, the web application also includes an advanced inspection planning system that offers a full overview of every inspection planned and enables users to easily plan recurring inspections.

Book in, book out

SafeTrak can be used to keep track of a wide range of equipment such as personal protection equipment, drills, hammers, screwdrivers, scaffolding, ladders, label printers or lockout bags. With SafeTrak, every tool can easily be checked in or out as long as it is labelled with a serial number, barcode or RFID label.

Automated reporting

Predefined inspection templates can be created in SafeTrak to standardise and digitalise a variety of inspection reports. The web application can generate automated high level reports by extracting data from the inspection templates at regular intervals or on demand. With just a few clicks, inspection reports containing the most recent and complete data will always available via SafeTrak.

SafeTrak Mobile

The SafeTrak Mobile App can easily be accessed in the field on any smartphone. Internet access is not required. Enter an equipment serial number to access a predefined inspection template and equipment location information, or scan the equipment’s barcode. Log out after an inspection and the app will automatically upload data for immediate reporting once internet connection is restored.

See a face, not an object! Because safety is personal

By Brady Corporation

See a person instead of an object by printing a face directly on your Lockout/Tagout padlocks. Build on the one person, one lock, one key principle for maximum Lockout/Tagout safety! Find out how to fully personalise padlocks.

A Lockout/Tagout padlock is often the last obstacle to prevent a premature machine energisation, and a potential maintenance accident with impact on professionals and on their personal lives. To strongly highlight that Lockout/Tagout padlocks protect people, Brady Corporation now offers PrintFace: a complete padlock personalisation, up to printing coworkers’ pictures directly on their padlocks. 

Personal padlocks

By printing a face on padlocks, each Lockout/Tagout padlock can clearly show who it is protecting. PrintFace will help deter padlock tampering and will highlight that safety is very personal. Removing padlocks in Lockout/Tagout should only be done by the padlock owner, who is shown on the lock. Team leaders, or a site safety manager, can step in if necessary, by following an agreed on procedure that maintains safety. Next to adding a picture, other personalisation options are available including adding a company logo, serial number, text and more.

Highly reliable prints

Personalisation can be printed in full colour and in high resolution directly on Brady’s nylon SafeKey-padlocks for Lockout/Tagout. The print is abrasion -, chemical -, and UV-resistant and highly reliable in both in- and outdoor lockouts. In addition, padlock engraving is available to achieve an even higher reliability, at the expense of colour and complex shapes. As a third, standard approach to personalise padlocks, it is also possible to write or print basic information on self-adhesive labels supplied with any Brady padlock.”

Achieve the highest Lockout/Tagout safety

Brady’s SafeKey Lockout Padlocks offer 700% more lock and key combinations than a standard safety padlock. An innovative lock mechanism enables 100 000+ combinations that can optimally support complex key hierarchies including several master and grandmaster keys. All key numbers are charted to ensure no two keys in the same company will open the same lock if so required. This enables a safe, future-proof Lockout/Tagout programme that fully respects the procedure’s one person, one lock, one key principle.”

Clear visibility of equipment status at the point of use

By Brady

Increase inspection efficiency with Scafftag’s reliable holders and inserts that can communicate the safety status of any type of equipment at the point of use.

Scafftag holders and inserts can communicate best practice inspection procedures on the equipment that needs inspection. Both the holders and removable inserts are highly customisable and can support the standardisation of inspection procedures. A QR code can also be printed on the inserts or holders to activate a digital inspection flow via a smartphone and Safetrak software, complete with inspection planning management and automatic inspection report generation.

Clear communication at the point of use

When properly used and applied on equipment and in plain view, Scafftag Tags can always communicate the latest equipment status to anyone who wants to use a specific piece of equipment. Tags are available for almost any tool or equipment, including ladders, scaffolds, drills, vehicles and engines. Inspection records on the tag’s insert will show when equipment was considered fit for use. When equipment fails inspection, the inspector can remove the insert to show a clear ‘Do not use’ message on the tag’s holder. In this way, Scafftag helps prevent costly workplace accidents resulting from the use of unfit equipment.

Extremely robust and reliable

Holders and inserts are designed to last in extreme outdoor conditions. Holders are made out of ABS or Nylon and will rarely break. The polypropylene inserts can withstand water, oil and dirt while still being easy to write on. Both the holder and insert can resist prolongued UV exposure in order to stay legible in construction sites.

Discover Scafftag Visual Tagging solutions and use highly efficient equipment inspections with robust and reliable tags.
