One of the most successful waste reduction programs that I have worked with is the Leak Tag program. It should be implemented anywhere that steam, water, compressed air or oil leaks are draining away profits.
Many leaks are safety hazards that need to be eliminated quickly.
The heart of the program is a multi part tag. The Leak Tag provides high visibility for tagged leaks and a take away record of what needs to be done. The tags can be custom printed to suit your company and your way of handling repair work flow.
The take away part of the tag can serve as a work requisition. Or, it can be used to capture the information needed to generate a maintenance work order.
The tags are supplied with a wire for hanging a high visibility durable tag at the site of the leak. The hang tag makes it easy for the folks tasked with making the repair to find a leak that was discovered by someone else.
The repair crew removes and signs off on the tag for the completed repair. This provides feedback for work control and for the person who discovered the leak. This feedback closes the communication loop for that job.
Leak tags eliminate confusion about weather or not a leak has been reported.
The leak tag program provides a very positive way for all employees to be involved in resource conservation.
Informative posters and display boards, that make the blank tags available to everyone, are an important part of the program.
The helpful folks at Awareness Ideas will supply leak tag materials to fit in with your way of taking care of business.
