Tyvek® provides an ideal balance of protection, durability and comfort of any limited use fabric technology. Tyvek® fabric offers an inherent barrier to particles down to 1 micron in size. Protection is built into the fabric itself; there are no films or laminates to abrade or wear away.

The Food Manufacturing industry comprises a variety of networks that together produce food products we as consumers rely on to sustain our daily lives. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the food manufacturing industry represents 10% of all U.S. manufacturing shipments and has over 30,000 industrial manufacturing plants across the country. With operations consisting of dairy processing, fruit and vegetable preservation, grain and oilseed milling, and poultry preparation and packaging, quality assurance plays a significant role in keeping contaminated products out of the food chain.
Food plants across the globe face the dual responsibility of not only protecting the people who consume their products but, most importantly, protecting their employees from the inherent dangers they encounter on the job. To achieve this, food safety and sanitation must go hand-in-hand with a safe and healthy workplace. Methods like the 5S Lean Manufacturing Method or Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP) improve workplace efficiency and eliminate waste, while improving safety by continuously evaluating workplace and housekeeping processes. Creating a visually communicative workplace through the use of safety, lean, and instructional signage is key to a safe and sanitary workplace.
Food manufacturing poses several unique safety and sanitation challenges for manufacturing line workers. The U.S. Department of Labor reported nearly 20,000 workplace injuries in 2018 in the food manufacturing industry resulting in an average of eight days away from work. Even with technological advances and new regulations in place, workers are still being injured on the job. Sharp knives, hot ovens, cold storage, debris on floors and bacteria are just some of the dangers industry workers encounter.
Data based on U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics survey of occupational injuries and illnesses. This data is from the 2018 U.S. survey.
