Infographic: Designating FOD Areas in Manufacturing

FOD Areas Infographic

Any area where products are made, checked, tested, fixed, stored, or received can be a FOD-free zone. Many facilities use a three-layered naming system for jobs and storage areas that are prone to FOD.

  • Post signs, banners, decals, barriers, floor markings, tape or similar media at the entrance of a FOD area designation.
  • Require that personnel complete a training course before they are allowed unescorted access into the area.
  • Develop procedures to inventory and track parts, tools, consumables, debris and personal items in the area.
