THE EFFICIENT WORKPLACE PROGRAM HELPS AN AEROSPACE MRO FACILITY INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY AND REDUCE WASTE

Problem

• Technicians working with hydraulic fluid were required to wear 15 mil thick chemical resistant loves, but many used 5-6 mil Nitrile gloves or no gloves for better dexterity

• Hydraulic fluid degraded the Nitrile thin mil gloves quickly. Workers needed about 50 pairs per 8 hour shift

• Degraded and torn pieces of gloves in drain tables and workstations resulted in potential process and product damage from Foreign Object Debris (FOD)

 

Countermeasure

Jackson Safety* G29 Solvent Gloves for protection and dexterity

 

Results

Cost and Waste Reduction:

• Technicians reduced glove usage 80% — from 50 pairs per day to 4 pairs per day

• Reduction in glove changes increased productivity

 

Reduced Potential for Product Damage:

Jackson Safety* G29 Solvent Gloves provide better puncture resistance to reduce potential of FOD
