Your manufacturing or logistics facility exists for the following reasons: to receive product, do something with that product, and ship product back out the door. This sequence plays out in facilities across the world all day every day, and it’s only brought to you thanks to the People, Property, and Processes that make up the material handling industry. If you take any one of these three things away, then material isn’t getting received, products aren’t being made, and shipments aren’t going out. It’s on YOU to decide how to protect the people, property, and processes that keep your industry moving forward. RDC is an industrial solutions provider that partners with manufacturers like Ideal Shield to help protect your greatest assets.

Protect Your People

The most important asset to protect in your facility is undoubtedly your people. Keeping people safe is crucial because ultimately, it’s the people who get processes done. Whether they are on a manufacturing line, walking to the breakroom, or fulfilling a work order on the roof of the building, people always need protection. RDC can deliver the following products to help ensure your people go home safely every single day.

Protect Your Property

Material can’t get into a building, move throughout a facility, and leave as a finished product without property. Starting with the building itself, property represents a significant investment in your facility in the form of loading docks and doors, freight lifts, conveyors, high-speed doors, walls, offices, gates, etc. Like people, property is worth protecting, too. Even though property is replaceable, the goal is to achieve a good ROI and take your property investment all the way to the end-of-life expectancy. To get to that goal line, protection is crucial. Below are some products that RDC offers that can help protect the property at your facility.

Protect Your Processes

If one of your processes is impacted, your entire facility is impacted. Protecting assembly lines, conveyors, mezzanines, and other similar processes are necessary to ensure you keep your facility profitable and doing what it’s designed to do! Lead times are still long, and material shortages are still a real concern, so you can’t afford to let a critical piece of process machinery become negatively impacted. The cost to proactively protect your processes is a fraction of the cost to react when a process gets damaged. See below for products that RDC can provide to help protect the processes in your facility.

You have two choices: (1) be proactive and protect your people, property, and processes, or (2) be reactive and protect them after an accident happens.  After an accident, you’re going to want to prevent it from happening again, so why not try to prevent it from ever happening in the first place? According to a 2022 insurance study from Liberty Mutual, workplace accidents cost industry big money in workman’s comp claims alone. Struck-by hazards, falls from heights, crush hazards from equipment, and other non-fatal accidents cost our industry $50 Billion in 2022. Don’t make that number any bigger! Whether you are reacting to a recent accident or want to be proactive and prevent one from ever happening, RDC can provide solutions to protect your people, property, and processes!
