Color: The Universal Language of Safety

It's a great start to a new year and many companies are looking for ways to improve production while maintaining safety standards and reducing risk.

Implementing a color-coding program can improve efficiencies and safety while reducing the costs of maintaining tools and equipment. A color-coding program can be embedded into your work processes as a natural part of your Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), or as a proactive risk reduction step as part of your HACCP prerequisite program.

Simplify Training & Streamline Operations

A color-coding system is easy to understand and learn. Colors are universal, no matter what language someone speaks. Color coding your tools can speed up your processes by ensuring equipment is easy to locate and properly put away, keeping efficiency high and mistakes low.

Improve Safety & Reduce Risk of Cross Contamination

Color-coded tools are a practical, straight forward way to ensure greater food safety by making it easier to more effectively separate processes, zones and equipment in your food production setup and thus minimize cross-contamination.

Reduce Costs of Tools & Equipment

Color coding ensures that tools and equipment are stored correctly on hooks, hangers or shadow boards. Costs linked to replacing equipment are reduced, because tools and equipment last longer. A color-coding program can also reduce the quantity of tools and equipment used in production.
