What are shadow boards?

Shadow boards provide a dedicated home for small and mobile equipment such as cleaning utensils and hand tools.

Whenever equipment is not in use, returning it to the shadow board means it can be instantly found next time. It is also protected from getting damaged or lost.

When equipment is not present, detailed shadows make it easy to instantly identify what is missing, increasing accountability and tracking of equipment. Where necessary, it helps streamline the replenishment process.

Why use shadow boards?

Providing a dedicated station for tools and equipment is proven to:

  • Save time
  • Create order
  • Reduce errors
  • Increase equipment life
  • Reduce replacement costs

By combining effective workplace organisation and best practice, shadow boards deliver operational efficiencies which benefit everyone.

“We started with implementing cleaning tool shadow boards in one ‘pilot’ area, but then swiftly cascaded this into other areas due to the success and support of the boards. We now use Shadow Boards for PPE, Cleaning, Tools & QC testing.”
