Shadow Boards

Shadow Boards are ideal to keep track of your cleaning equipment and prevent cross contamination, use a shadow board cleaning station for tool storage when tools are not in use. When a tool is in use, a detailed shadow of the tool shape is visible on the board which makes it easy for workers to identify what is missing after use with the intention of increasing accountability, and streamlining inventory replenishment. After using the shadow board tools, placing them back on the shadow board allows other workers to find them easily and quickly the next time they need to use them. By changing your cleaning tool storage methods by using a cleaning station system by installing shadow boards to hold cleaning tools and equipment, you can help boost workplace productivity, lengthen the cleaning equipment's life, and prevent cross-contamination of materials or other ingredients which is especially important in food factories or where medical facilities or laboratories with biosecurity issues to consider. With employees in different shifts handling cleaning tasks in your workplace, it is easy to misplace cleaning equipment. It is not only frustrating for the workers, but it also affects the entire production. Imagine having delays because of a massive spill on the floor and the mop and bucket are nowhere in sight. The lack of proper storage or a suitable cleaning station also increases the risk of cross-contamination if you happen to use the wrong equipment in the wrong area. It shortens the equipment's lifespan and affects workplace safety standards which can impact on instances of accidents.
