Orion Fans IP69K-rated AC and DC fans are the optimal solution for restrictive environments. The IP69K rating ensures that no damage will occur to electronics during washdown procedures and that no contaminants will enter the fan motor. These fans are rigorously spray tested with 80°C water every 30 seconds with the spray nozzle being 4-6 inches from the fan. The water sprays from 4 angles and is considered a high-pressure stream.

To maintain compliance with OSHA lockout/tagout standard 1910.147, it is required to perform annual inspections of both the procedures and employee competency in lockout/tagout practices. Annual audits are an important part of a lockout/tagout program because audits can reveal inconsistencies and problems.

When it comes to annual audits, there are three main steps to complete:

  •    -   LOTO procedure audit
  •    -   Authorized employee compliance review
  •    -   Addressing any deficiencies in people, procedures, and processes

Variations in the printing or marking method of barcodes and direct part marks (DPMs) - including poor ink distribution, incorrect thermal printer heat settings, or uneven pressure in surface abrasion - can hamper readability. Since no-reads can make production inefficient, it's important to understand the types of print/mark inconsistencies and their causes.

Here, each category of inconsistency will be defined and then some possible solutions discussed.
