Why use instrument storage stations?- Reduce downtime - storing each thermometer in a known location ensures that it can be instantly located when required.
- Reduce repair costs - safe and proper storage of probe thermometers when not in use significantly reduces mishaps.
- Engender a culture of care and ownership - when operatives become accountable for correct storage of instrumentation, replacement and repair costs are significantly reduced.
- Improve segregation and awareness - reinforce colour coding policies, highlight areas and special instructions by adding titles and footnotes to instrument stations/racks.
- 5S and lean management - thermometer storage/instrument stations support 5S and lean management concepts simply and effectively. Introduction of bespoke installations has impressed auditors at every level.
