Why Machine Safety? Safety is an issue of major concern as today’s automated workplace is potentially more hazardous than ever before, and studies have shown that most manufacturers are not in compliance with current safety legislation.
OSHA's Office of Regulatory Affairs estimates that for every one dollar invested in workplace safety, four to six dollars are saved. Although it is difficult to estimate financial costs in advance of an injury, the direct and indirect costs of having an employee injured on the job are staggering and can be easily prevented.
Learn why, when and how to implement proper machine safeguarding to make your plant safe and productive. Reduce liability and risk, conform to OSHA, ANSI, and European Safety Standards, and reach your objective: an injury free environment.
Who should attend? EH&S personnel, plant maintenance, plant engineering, production managers, all managers concerned with safety of plant personnel.
