No molding shop should be without socks,
pillows and the like!
IMS carries DAWG® Absorbent Products because leaks happen – whether oil or water – and you need to be able to contain them quickly and neatly to protect the safety, appearance and profitability of your shop.
The cleanest shop can develop a sudden leak, and you can contain it and absorb it easily and inexpensively with IMS DAWG® Products.
A great shop can also have ongoing leaks. Maybe the manpower is not available to repair the leak, maybe you can’t afford the loss of production to shut down the machine, maybe the repair parts are not available, maybe the cost of the repair is higher than the cost of the leaked fluids. Whatever the reason, a neatly contained leak can maintain safe floors and preserve a professional appearance.
SAFETY AND PROFITABILITY
Safety and profit go hand in hand, and wet or oily floors are a threat to both.
- A slip can cause an injury that causes pain for the rest of the worker’s life. It could be you who falls.
- Injuries cost money directly in medical expenses and higher insurance premiums.
- Injuries carry opportunity cost. Someone else has to cover for the injured employee instead of doing what you pay them to do.
- OSHA fines are possible
29 CFR 1910.22(a)(1) All places of employment, passageways, storerooms, and service rooms shall be kept clean and orderly and in a sanitary condition.
29 CFR 1910.22(a)(2) The floor of every workroom shall be maintained in a clean and, so far as possible, a dry condition. Where wet processes are used, drainage shall be maintained, and false floors, platforms, mats, or other dry standing places should be provided where practicable.
- In some states the injured person can sue the company.
APPEARANCE AND SALESMANSHIP
Wet or oily floors look bad. Leaking machines create a negative environment. Neatly controlling leaks dramatically improves the appearance. It tells your workers and your customers that your shop is under control. You send a message to your customers that you care about details – and to your workers that you care about them.
Your customers might tour several shops before selecting a supplier. One of your competitors is going to have a spotlessly clean shop. How are you going to look in comparison? No matter how strong your manufacturing abilities, some customers are going to make quick judgments based on appearance alone.
