Exposure to dust and fumes can not only cause long term health problems for operators but can also damage machinery, reduce productivity and lower the quality of end products.
To upgrade the inspection capabilities of its measurement laboratory, the quality department at the Chassis & Safety division of automotive equipment manufacturer Continental invested in two LK Metrology ALTERA multi=-sensor coordinate measuring machines (CMMs).
Ensuring compliance with an electrical safety program isn't always easy, but there are plenty of tools available to help you succeed.
As technology continues to evolve, so will keeping workers safe. Drones, virtual reality, automation and RFID sensors will take their place in the warehouses across the globe, keeping workers safe and improving efficiency and productivity.
Safety used to be treated somewhat as an afterthought, in that it was added as a separate system once all the other production equipment was in place. Nowadays, many manufacturers are seeing the benefits of integrated safety systems.
Workplace safety is important everywhere, but manufacturing environments with heavy equipment and specialized employees and workflows may have even more to gain from developing more robust safety, training and incident response protocols.
Whether you're following standard OSHA laws or their newest guidelines, choosing one of the innovative approaches to safety below can allow you to meet these in addition to going beyond what is expected.
These are the four most common workplace injuries, but they aren't the only ones that can occur. The best thing supervisors and business owners can do to protect their employees from on-the-job injuries is to implement comprehensive safety training and continue it annually
Being prepared can help prevent costly equipment or facility damage. You can't avoid every disaster, but being ready for them when they do occur can help reduce downtime and save you a lot of money on equipment repair and replacement in the long run.
Intrinsic safety has a unique advantage over other ignition protection methods. Because trained personnel can connect and disconnect live circuits, it is possible to remove and replace intrinsically safe devices in hazardous areas.
Paint is one part of the manufacturing process that happens in nearly every industry, but it's one thing that many people don't think twice about. That is largely due to the fact that making paint is a complicated chemical process.
When safety is addressed early in the design phase, it is more effective and can prove to be a more economical safety play in the long run for the facility. However, its never too late.
The use of technology to expand health and safety in the workplace is effective and significant. There are fewer uses of technology that are more important than the improved safety of the workers.
Pneumatic circuits can be safe when carefully examined and implemented. The designers can use the appropriate level of reliability based on their assessment of the risk and frequency of the potential risk.
Sensors withstand extreme temperatures, pressures and aggressive chemicals.
