What Should FOD Control Look Like for Your Industrial Painting and Flooring Project?

An eye for details has nev­er been so important!

At Kaloutas, we believe in detail-ori­ent­ed work. We live this out through close com­mu­ni­ca­tion and coor­di­na­tion with you through­out your project, and also through an empha­sis on project con­tain­ment and care­ful work practices.

The impor­tance of this focus reach­es new heights when it comes to FOD con­trol. In fact, it can lit­er­al­ly be a life or death matter.

What to Know About FOD Services

What Is FOD?

The acronym FOD” can stand for one of two dis­tinct, but inter­con­nect­ed, issues:

Either For­eign Object Debris,” or For­eign Object Damage.”

The prob­lems start with For­eign Object Debris. In extreme­ly sim­ple terms, this debris is an object that should not be where it is. From some­thing as large as a piece of equip­ment to some­thing as small as a dis­card­ed bolt, this out-of-place item can cause cat­a­stroph­ic dam­age in many indus­tries. And, espe­cial­ly so in envi­ron­ments that require absolute con­trol and spe­cif­ic conditions.

For­eign Object Dam­age, as you may sur­mise, is the result of this debris. The dam­age can range from destroyed or com­pro­mised equip­ment and prod­ucts to severe injury or loss of life, depend­ing on the func­tion of the space.

Which indus­tries are most sus­cep­ti­ble to both forms of FOD?

  • Avi­a­tion
  • Ware­hous­es
  • Man­u­fac­tur­ing
  • Shipping/​Receiving
  • Mil­i­tary Facilities
  • …and more

FOD Con­tain­ment and Indus­tri­al Paint­ing Services

What is the con­nec­tion between Kaloutas and FOD con­tain­ment strategies?

Well, many of our clients exact­ly fall into the indus­try cat­e­gories list­ed above. This means that our con­trol prac­tices take on unpar­al­leled impor­tance when we are work­ing in a facil­i­ty like yours. Our team is thor­ough­ly trained and equipped for cut­ting-edge con­tain­ment.

Beyond ongo­ing train­ing, we also take these precautions:

  • We cre­ate a floor-to-ceil­ing, sealed envi­ron­ment (asbestos grade).
  • Ensure that all work is per­formed inside of our con­tained space.
  • Uti­lize fresh air sup­ply and air scrub­bers when necessary.
  • Prac­tice a clean work envi­ron­ment standard.
  • Ensure that all Per­son­al Pro­tec­tive Equip­ment is utilized.

Our safe­ty prac­tices have been care­ful­ly devel­oped with the goal that every mem­ber of our team goes home at the end of the day in the same con­di­tion in which they arrived. Our goal is the same for your work­force, and envi­ron­ment. We under­stand how crit­i­cal project con­tain­ment is to your suc­cess­ful oper­a­tions and safety.
