Is U.S. Manufacturing Back?

U.S. manufacturing, like most sectors, took a nosedive at the start of the pandemic. Since then, the sector has seen a drastic and rapid recovery. Today, signs suggest that U.S. manufacturing is finally rounding the corner. Factories are once again outputting goods, demand for these goods is rising, and the economy is seeing stability for the first time in months. But the pandemic is not over, and factories need to continue their vigilance in order to make sure this recovery stays on track.

Contact Tracing Efforts

Contact tracing is crucial to keeping U.S. factories open. When a worker falls ill, the potential for cases to spread is real. Keeping on top of workers with regular testing is key to stopping cases in their tracks, but contact tracing is just as important. Make sure that workers who test positive recall every other worker they interacted with, and all equipment they may have used.

Social Distancing With Industrial Computers

If workers share the same equipment, outbreaks in your facility may be more severe than they otherwise would have been. Giving workers their own workstations with industrial computers can potentially cut back on the potential of widespread cases in your factories.

Industrial computer workstations don’t have to be entire cubicles, with rugged mini PCs they can be as small as your factory requires. Rugged mini PCs are small industrial computers with all the power of their larger counterparts. With Mini industrial PCs, workers can have entire workstations without the square footage they require. Mini industrial computer-based workstations also promote social distancing by allowing every worker to do their tasks on separate devices.

Re-Energize With Tangent

Manufacturing is up, but so are cases. Make sure that your factory is equipped with the technology to keep your workers socially distanced and safe. Tangent industrial computers can help your factory do just that. Contact Tangent Sales today for more information.

Industrial computers Tangent food processing Plants

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
Rugged Mini O 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.
