Managing an industrial facility means dealing with several hazards. While some of these risks, like repetitive motion strains and machine collisions, may be obvious, some are less evident. Noise control, for example, often goes overlooked in industrial safety.
Without being extremely precise about what you are doing throughout the entire manufacturing process you can put people at risk. So following regulations and compliance standards are crucial for manufacturers - from back-end processes to production to the final product.
From laboratories to meat processing plants, from hospitals to explosion-proof clean rooms: there are applications in which the highest operating safety meets maximum hygienic requirements.
Designed with teams in mind, the free, two-day event will include guidance on truly human leadership, tactics for teamwork, lessons in continuous development, and more. The event will explore how businesses can capitalize on ongoing shifts in business operations.
The coronavirus pandemic is fast-tracking the take-up of "workstream collaboration". This next generation of unified productivity and collaboration tools is designed to make it easier for colleagues to work together from afar.
As situations and equipment are constantly evolving based on consumer demand and market disruptions, manufacturers need to respond quickly to capitalize on new opportunities, and this requires agile reconfigurations that maintain a prioritization of worker safety.
Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), the manufacturing industry can protect workers better and ensure that all employees wear gear to stay compliant with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) protocols to avoid costly penalties.
Often robots have enough mass, speed, and inertia that any contact with humans creates the primary hazard; process driven hazards, for example sparks/splatter and UV light in a robotic welding process becomes the secondary hazard.
Spectacular failures tend to attract much attention. It is simple curiosity as to why it happened and why something was not done to prevent it. One such event was the engine fire on a Boeing 777 flight over Denver in February 2021.
When most people hear "reverse osmosis" (RO), their minds likely go to drinking water. While purifying drinking water is a significant use case for it, and arguably its most notable, RO has far broader applications.
Using the correct air filtration systems in your manufacturing facility is essential for avoiding air pollution and keeping workers healthy. Here are some actionable tips for ensuring company leaders make the best decisions about their air filtration systems.
Compliance with safety regulations can provide significant benefits. The right certification can ensure workers on the floor are as safe as possible and make your facility seem more trustworthy to potential partners.
Learn when and why it is best to use digital pressure sensors in industrial applications and what types of features can help increase system safety, efficiency and reliability.
Senior executives seek answers to questions like - Can I make my supply chain agile; Can I do online RFPs and supplier management. Can I run my factories remotely? Can I ensure social distancing on the factory floor by reducing the number of people on the factory floor?
When dust accumulates and reaches hazardous levels, it can cause respiratory issues and damage machinery. If it builds too much, manufacturers risk the threat of a fire. Instead, it's critical to pinpoint the obstacles and create a plan to overcome them.
