Keep Workers Safe With Automation

As the pandemic continues to make its ways through the country, it is more important than ever to keep your workers safe. Workers in factories, food processing plants, refrigerated facilities, and oil rigs all work together in close quarters. This means that the potential for an outbreak is real, and can have lasting effects on your workers and business. Keeping your workers safe is paramount during this time, and one of the best ways to keep them safe is to advance your facilities’ automation efforts.

Automation With Industrial Computers

Automation may seem like a sort of catch-all phrase, but it can have tangible benefits for your facility. With industrial computers, automating your facility doesn’t have to be a headache. Today’s industrial computers are fast, efficient, and easy to use. Take the Rugged Mini E3 industrial computer from Tangent for instance. With 32 gigabytes of RAM, this industrial grade computer is capable of multitasking unlike any other industrial computer. This amount of RAM allows the E3 mini industrial computer to run numerous industrial automation systems simultaneously and without delay.

With an industrial grade computer like the Rugged Mini E3, your facility can run more automated programs with less computers. This allows you to have less workers on the factory floor, and therefore create more social distancing in your facility. Workers stay safe, and the productivity of your facility skyrockets.

Create Worker “Bubbles” With Industrial Computers

With more systems automated, your workers can reorganize their efforts and consolidate tasks. This can allow you to make worker “bubbles,” wherein workers only interact with the same few workers each day. This ensures that if an outbreak does occur at your facility, that it only affects a small number of workers as opposed to all of them. This also allows workers to rethink how they do their job, and find new and creative ways to be productive.

For instance, workers can use time they would otherwise spend going around your facility on their industrial computers. By creating pockets of workers and giving them their tasks via industrial computer, their workload is always present and ready for them.

Do It All With Tangent

One of the easiest ways to keep your industrial workers safe is by keeping them distanced. With industrial computers from Tangent, this is not only achievable, but cost effective. Learn more by contacting Tangent Sales today.

Preventing Disease Spread In Food Processing Plants

How often should a food processing plant be in the news? Ideally, never. But as the pandemic continues on, food processing plants have come up more and more often in the news as potential hot-spots for infection. While these facilities are crucial to supplying Americans with the food they need, it is nevertheless important to acknowledge that poor working conditions and workplace hazards are a detriment to the branding of any company. Food processing plants are no exception, and preventing disease spread in your food processing plant is crucial to protecting employee lives, keeping the facility running smoothly, and maintaining your brand.

Perform Strict Virus Testing

The easiest solution to preventing an outbreak at your food processing plant is to ensure that one can never start in the first place. Remember, it is always better to be overly cautious now than to be dealing with strikes, plant closures, and lawsuits later. These outcomes could be disastrous for your facility, and preventing them is crucial.

Tyson Foods has implemented a weekly virus testing policy for all of its food processing plant workers. This is a bold step in the right direction. While it may be costly in the short term to perform weekly testing, a full food processing plant closure will be extremely costly in the long term. Keeping workers safe is the same as keeping your plant open during this pandemic.

Increase Safety Measures

While your food processing plant has more than likely already implemented some safety measures, it is time to implement the very extremest of measures. It is not enough for employees to wear masks and be tested regularly, they must also maintain social distance and keep their industrial hygiene at its peak.

Rugged Mini O Industrial Computer From Tangent

Industrial hygiene is crucial during this pandemic. Workers should be able to clean their industrial computers regularly. Industrial computers like the Mini O from Tangent are fully waterproof, receiving the highest IP rating (IP69K) for water resistance. Implementing these industrial computers into your facility will allow workers to fully sanitize their industrial computers before and after use. These strict measures can help ensure that asymptomatic workers do not become the point of an outbreak for your food processing plant.

Augment Your Facility To Handle Social Distancing

Your food processing plant may be experiencing some level of social distancing currently, but chances are these measures have resulted in diminished productivity. Simply removing some workers from one area without altering the way your facility is set up is wasting both labor and space.

It may be time to reimagine your food processing plant entirely. With the addition of industrial grade computers, the amount of workers that need to be in one place can be drastically reduced. Small, rugged mini industrial computers from Tangent can be placed in virtually any situation. With extreme water resistance, temperature resistance, and fanless designs, mini industrial computers from Tangent can fit into your food processing plant and augment the way you do business.

Stay Safe With Tangent

Neither your or your workers want an outbreak to occur at your food processing plant. With industrial computers from Tangent, the chances of this occurring can be reduced. Contact Tangent sales today for more information on our lineup of durable and safe industrial computers.
