How are tools organized in drawers?

If your company uses a lot of tools, you need to make sure that they are kept organized in drawers when they are not in use. This will help to make it easier for people to find them when they are needed. In addition, it will help to keep them from getting damaged and can even help to reduce the risk of them being lost or stolen. Fortunately, there are some easy things you can do to keep tools organized in drawers.

The best thing you can do when organizing your tool drawer is to remove all the tools and take an inventory of them so you know exactly what you have. Next, make a foam insert with cutouts that are shaped like each tool. Once you place the foam insert into your drawer, each tool will have a dedicated place where it should be kept.

Placing labels onto the foam either inside of the cutout or near it will also help to make it easier to find the tools that are needed. You can indicate what type of tool goes into each cutout as well as the size of the tool. This is especially important for things like sockets, wrenches, and other size-specific tools.

While it will certainly take some time and effort to organize your tool drawers, it will be worth it in the end. Once your drawers are properly organized, everyone will be able to quickly grab what they need so that work can be done more efficiently.
