We create and supply a wide range of products that benefit a 5S Lean methodology, with Cleaning Stations being one of our most popular by far. Cleaning Stations are a type of shadow board that focus on apparatus used for cleaning an area, such as dustpans, a variety of brushes, mop and bucket, soap dispenser, wet floor sign, and anything else your teams need easy access to on a regular basis.
Shadow boards in general are designed to eliminate wasted time that’s taken up by searching for the right tool or piece of equipment. As long as your staff are trained to return equipment as soon as they’ve finished using it, instances of company property being misplaced should reduce dramatically overnight.
In addition, if a piece of equipment were to go missing, you’ll know who was on shift when it happened. Due to this accountability, team members become much more likely to take ownership over apparatus and ensure that it’s returned to the station immediately after use.
In the event of a spillage or similar incident, Cleaning Stations speed up the process by giving staff everything they need to contain and clean up the mess. They also know exactly where to find a wet floor sign and can sanitise their hands straight afterwards if these specific tools are incorporated into the Cleaning Station.
Food factories need to ensure that cross-contamination is prevented at all times. When a team member is cleaning up a spillage without the use of a Cleaning Station, they may accidentally use equipment from another area that results in allergens entering sensitive environments. By giving each work area its own Cleaning Stations, you can guarantee that cross-contamination is avoided entirely.
Needless to say, the availability and accessibility of cleaning equipment means that your workplace will be cleaner than ever. In the process, the Cleaning Stations also reduce clutter and untidiness by keeping equipment in its place. Combine our Cleaning Stations with a range of other Shadow Boards and messy work areas will swiftly become a thing of the past.
This also helps to further increase employee engagement, as it makes each team member more aware of their role in keeping the premises running at optimum efficiency.
We believe that one size rarely fits all, which is why we’re so passionate about providing bespoke solutions to businesses across the UK. When you choose a Clarity Cleaning Station, you get the option to have it as a wall-mounted, free-standing or mobile unit, plus you can add your branding to truly make it your own.
That’s not all, as we give you the power to select exactly which cleaning tools are included on each board. That way, if one department needs an angled lobby brush and pan but another area will benefit more from a broom and squeegee, all you have to do is drag and drop them into place using our Cleaning Stations Creator.
Clarity Cleaning Stations come with a special scuff-resistant finish to keep them in top condition and are BRC accredited, which is essential for food industry environments. To find out more and to place an order, get in touch on 01482 296451 or fill in our contact form.
