FOD containment services in a facility. How FOD Containment Services Make Commercial Projects Efficient

The activ­i­ty present in indus­tri­al and com­mer­cial facil­i­ties pro­duces sig­nif­i­cant amounts of debris. If not prop­er­ly con­tained or prompt­ly cleared away, this debris – often called For­eign Object Debris (FOD) – may con­t­a­m­i­nate sur­faces, dam­age assets, and cre­ate occu­pant health and safe­ty haz­ards. For­eign object debris exam­ples include fail­ing build­ing com­po­nents, office sup­plies (e.g., paper clips, pens, sta­ples), tools, loose parts and hard­ware, gear, con­crete or met­al frag­ments, and more. Sim­ply put, if an object is some­where it doesn’t belong, it falls under the umbrel­la of FOD

FOD con­tain­ment is designed to pre­vent dam­age and oth­er issues caused by FOD by erect­ing bar­ri­ers to sep­a­rate work zones. The best FOD con­tain­ment pro­to­cols make for safer, more effi­cient facil­i­ties. Let’s explore the many ways in which FOD con­tain­ment ser­vices increase the effi­cien­cy and safe­ty of your com­mer­cial projects.

Ways FOD Con­tain­ment Ser­vices Increase the Effi­cien­cy and Safe­ty of Com­mer­cial Projects

Pre­vent Cost­ly Asset Damage

Loose debris can dam­age aspects of your facil­i­ty in a num­ber of ways. Abra­sive mate­ri­als might scratch and wear down your assets when flung dur­ing repairs and ren­o­va­tions; cor­ro­sive mate­ri­als can erode floors; small objects can land inside machin­ery and cause it to mal­func­tion; the list goes on. Invest­ing in qual­i­ty FOD con­tain­ment ser­vices mit­i­gates these risks, reduc­ing the cost and sever­i­ty of your facil­i­ty main­te­nance needs (e.g., repairs and replacements).

Keep Per­son­nel Safe and Productive

For­eign Object Debris pro­duces var­i­ous haz­ards for work­ers with­in your com­mer­cial facil­i­ty. Larg­er mate­ri­als can cause slips, trips and falls, which may result in injury. Mean­while, tiny dust par­ti­cles lin­ger­ing in the air can trig­ger res­pi­ra­to­ry con­cerns. If left unchecked, then, FOD can hin­der your active labor force and rack up lia­bil­i­ties, slow­ing down pro­duc­tion and increas­ing costs. FOD con­tain­ment mit­i­gates these health and safe­ty con­cerns so your team con­tin­ues to oper­ate at full capacity.

Reduce Dis­trac­tions on the Job

The neg­a­tive effects of FOD aren’t lim­it­ed to asset dam­age and safe­ty con­cerns – FOD and the activ­i­ties that can pro­duce it are also sig­nif­i­cant dis­trac­tions for every­one else. The work being done in one area of your com­mer­cial facil­i­ty may be noisy, messy, and filled with debris. A com­mer­cial floor­ing resur­fac­ing project, for instance, can get in the way of reg­u­lar oper­a­tions – even if there’s some dis­tance between projects, the noise and mate­r­i­al can spill over into oth­er work zones. This inter­fer­ence slows down pro­duc­tion on both ends. Prop­er con­tain­ment allows each project to occur at the same time with a stronger degree of sep­a­ra­tion and sight­line man­age­ment. The few­er the dis­trac­tions, the smoother your operations.

Elim­i­nate Downtime

The afore­men­tioned dis­trac­tions, safe­ty con­cerns, and asset dam­age can all con­tribute to work stop­pages and injuries which every facil­i­ty should work to elim­i­nate. At Kaloutas, our space con­tain­ment sys­tems are part of a proac­tive approach that max­i­mizes pro­duc­tiv­i­ty and mit­i­gates work stop­page. We know how dif­fi­cult it can be to over­see mul­ti­ple projects at once inside your facil­i­ty with­out pump­ing the brakes some­where. This is why we care­ful­ly plan and con­tain our com­mer­cial and indus­tri­al projects, tak­ing into account your facility’s unique needs and sched­ules. Sim­ply put, we work the way you work – this is the key to improved safe­ty and efficiency.
