Leprino Foods, a leading manufacturer of cheeses and other dairy products, was in need of durable lockout tagout placards for their production equipment. They needed signs that were highly visible and that made their safety processes easy to understand. But, because Leprino’s plants require five to six hours of cleaning every day, management knew that ordinary safety signage would not be up to the task. Finding signs that could survive the company’s rigorous cleaning regimen presented a unique challenge. That’s where Lomont IMT came in.
After working with a lockout/tagout consulting firm to devise proper graphical representations and wording for their lockout tagout instructions, Leprino turned to Lomont to produce the placards. Using injection molding and in-mold technology (IMT), we fused Leprino’s graphics and the plastic backing of the placards into solid, one-piece signage. After field testing, accelerated weathering tests, and liquid penetrant inspection testing, we and Leprino were confident that the signs could withstand both the tough working conditions of Leprino’s manufacturing plants and their related sanitation routines. After 8 months, the placards are still in place and have held up to the vigorous cleaning schedule.
As an added safety measure, we manufactured Leprino’s lockout/tagout signs with metal compounds molded directly into the plastic. This way, if a sign were accidentally fractured, any pieces that may break off and fall into their product stream can be easily detected and discarded. This proved to be a key design feature, allowing Leprino to post equipment specific lockout tagout procedures on production equipment near food products where their employees need to perform lockouts.
