Ensuring a safe environment for people, equipment, and processes is an important component for efficient and profitable manufacturing. In fact, when all factors are considered, industrial safety can have a large positive impact on productivity and ultimately the bottom line.
It is critical to factor in a safe methodology when adding new variables onto the factory floor. The earlier these safety considerations are introduced, the less invasive and more impactful they become. However, success in safety is an ongoing commitment. By consistent review and analysis, we can realize further insights that can improve how we manufacture. Reviewing OSHA’s most seen violations is a great place to start.
For another year, fall protection tops the list of violations. The severity of an fall incident can massively impact normal operations. It is important to add guide rails and know when Personal Fall Arrest Systems are required.
Numbers 2, 5, and 8 all are of critical importance in automation equipment and robot systems. Since automation suppliers do not know the end-user's exact use of the equipment, or they simply have missed all applicable safety standards, it is important for manufacturers to stay vigilant and ask important safety questions during a project's progression. Much like purchasing a collaborative robot, a risk assessment must still be done once the robot cell is designed and it's behavior is defined.
Comprehensive industrial safety implementation can be a complicated process, but the the results are highly rewarding.
