The Abbott Labs formula contamination scandal has many manufacturers reassessing their sanitation practices. To clean up a manufacturing plant, it is important to go above and beyond the call of duty.
While so much of the occupational health and safety (OHS) industry these days is about being proactive and recognizing and then hopefully eliminating hazards before they can even become an issue, accidents do still happen. And when they do, everyone needs to be prepared.
Your role in protecting sensitive defense information from cybersecurity threats is imminent. And so is your requirement to prove that you're up for the task.
The manufacturing sector increasingly relies on factory automation to reach targets and keep quality levels high. However, no matter if a facility is fully or partially automated, there are essential safety practices to follow. Here are some of them.
Despite changes in working conditions, employers were still responsible for administering all types of training, from safety to job-specific onboarding and even general HR training. Perhaps unsurprisingly, many turned to online training for a solution.
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.

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
