PPE & Safety Vending Machines

Like many other industries dependent on touch and interaction, manufacturing and industrial distribution look a little different during the pandemic.

A renewed focus on safety will require you to rethink your manufacturing processes in order to eliminate exposure points, while ensuring PPE and other critical supplies are easily accessible for employees. In today’s age, inventory management must not only be smart – but also safe.

Simple adjustments to your existing distribution process can turn what was once a high-touch experience, virtually touchless. As one of your most comprehensive and complete sources for inventory data, CribMaster can also be utilised to track and document compliance with safety procedures. These capabilities can help you understand where risks in the supply chain are, as well as proactively identify and address safety gaps that may pose a risk to your workforce.
