PPE Vending Machine Solution

1. Cost Savings

The installation of a PPE vending machine can represent a significant saving for plants, certainly a boon in such a difficult economy. These savings result from higher efficiency among workers as well as reduced waste and higher productivity.

PPE vending programs can be free or very low cost to implement; machines can be leased or installed on consignment. Since the distribution of product is carefully controlled, those staff using PPE from a vending program tend to be more careful about the selected equipment, will be less likely to make poor choices and will be more likely to reuse equipment where possible. This can represent a significant cost saving in the long run.
 

2. Usage Monitoring and Control

Through the use of a vending machine, companies can control which PPE is available for employee use and can track the use of equipment acquired through the vending machine. Vending equipment is generally set up to use either ran employee number or ID card to gain access to the equipment within. The cards can be coded to only allow access to specific equipment, which leads to fewer mistakes and more efficient use of inventory.

 

 

3. Inventory Management

Vending machines can create reports on the use of equipment, allowing management to create more efficient inventory management procedures, cutting down on the amount of equipment in stock that is used less frequently and consequently creating less waste.

 

4. Restocking Efficiency

Modern vending machines can be connected directly to the Internet and set so that when product inventory reaches a certain minimum level, a restocking request is automatically transmitted to the supplier. This means that the unit is always stocked at optimal levels, creating better and more efficient inventory management procedures.

 

5. Training Opportunities
Hazard Analysis

Many pieces of PPE require specialized training and should not be distributed without proper instruction. PPE Vending machines can help to hone in on which employees need training on specific pieces of equipment.

If an employee is denied access to a piece of PPE, it could be because that equipment requires special training. Vending machines, through inventory tracking, can provide opportunities for management to arrange necessary training for PPE where needed via group or individual sessions.

In today’s economy, the use of a PPE vending program is a no-brainer. It creates more efficient practices, less waste, creates training opportunities for staff and is exceptionally cost-efficient. The question is not whether businesses should implement these programs, but why more business have not done so already.
