DAK Equipment & Engineering has installed industrial lockers for businesses across the country. Despite how often we work with businesses who want these lockers, we encounter some warehouse owners who think industrial lockers are a waste of their budget and their space. We’re here to tell you: they aren’t. Here are some of the reasons installing industrial lockers could actually help your business!
The Many Benefits of Industrial Lockers
Employees have a safe place to keep their things.
Very few people show up to work empty handed! Whether it’s a packed lunch, a purse, or a winter coat most employees have a few items they need to store during the workday. Their locker is the perfect place. Expecting them to keep items in their car can increase the risk of theft and having them put items in a communal area could pose a risk of clutter and create unnecessary hazards in the workplace.
Less wasted time running out to cars.
If you expect your team to keep their gear out in their car, they are going to have to go out to their cars more often. That 15-minute break could quickly get stretched out into 20 or 25 minutes depending on how far they have to walk. It’s likely going to slow down your production and put employees in a foul mood.
Work necessities can be kept on-site.
If your employees need specific equipment for their job (safety vests, hardhats, name badges, etc.) then a locker is a great place to keep it. Lockers help keep items organized and safe until they are needed. Otherwise, you’ll run the risk of those items making their way home to an employee’s house and not making it back for the next shift. That could put your employee at risk of safety violations or result in lost production time as they have to replace it or go home and get the item.
