Brady visited Woodlands Dairy several times to meet with senior management on how identification solutions could
optimise food safety, workplace safety and operational efficiency.
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 code immediately informs 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.
