How Vending Machines Can Simplify Workplace Safety
Nusafe’s Guide to the Safety Benefits of Vending Machines
As health and safety professionals express an increasing interest in vending systems – and with a significant rise in the implementation of vending machines for PPE and consumables – we have put together a simple guide to showcase exactly how these systems are helping our clients to improve their safety on a day to day basis:
1. ENSURING EQUIPMENT AVAILABILITY
On-site and automated vending machines means replenishments are communicated to and performed directly by the suppliers ensuring managers will not run out of products. This mitigates risks of operational delays ensuring that all employees have access to the legally required protection they need at all times.
2. DRIVING COMPLIANCE
The use of unique identification cards for each employee creates a live record of who is taking what and at what time. This can be used by management to track usage patterns and monitor employees products use. Access to this information gives context for identifying training requirements and addressing non-compliant workers, as well as encouraging employees to be accountable for their safety.
3. EMPOWERING EMPLOYEES
By giving employees instant access to the equipment they require throughout their shift, they are empowered to be responsible for their own safety. This fosters a stronger safety culture through engagement of the end-user, demonstrating the company’s trust in them and commitment to their safety resulting in a more positive safety culture across the workforce.
4. REDUCING ADMINISTRATION WORK
With an automated system, management can rest assured they will have the equipment they need without processing authorisations, freeing up time to focus on other responsibilities which create a safer environment.
5. REDUCES COSTS WITHOUT COMPROMISE
In addition to enhancing shop-floor safety, vending machines allow companies to reduce cost overall
by identifying items that are being overused and addressing consumption issues.
