Identification & Labeling Systems
Reducing Human Error Through Clear & Consistent Labeling
The importance of an effective labeling program should not be underestimated. Missing, misleading or incorrect tags and labels have led many operations and maintenance personnel down the path of confusion, near miss or inappropriate action. Even with the best effort at labeling during initial plant construction, further identification is needed after the plant has been in operation and additions and modifications have been made.
Existing plant labels, if they exist at all, are typically small metal tags, which have been embossed or stamped with identification characters. Common problems facility owners encounter are inconsistent terminology, lack of contrast, small character height that is difficult to read, insufficient information to clearly describe the component or system and inconsistent placement of the marker.
K2 Industrial offers a comprehensive turnkey labeling service that systematically provides equipment, process systems and manufacturing areas proper identification for improved productivity and safety. Our tagging and labeling service can be performed in conjunction with ongoing protective coatings work or as an independent project. We make sure your project is completed on time and within budget constraints.
- Assessing your identification and labeling needs
