Delivering Safety is the Right Thing to Do
Manufacturing Safety has countless risks and exposures and hazards that are present on and around manufacturing plants. It is vital to keep a safe work environment to reduce workplace injury and comply with OSHA enforced safety standards on the local, state and federal level.
A job hazard analysis (JHA), sometimes called a job safety analysis (JSA), is a process to ensure that each hazard at every plant is reviewed according to generally accepted safety and health principles. Once identified, each hazard can then be removed before any injury occurs.
Near Miss Reports
A near miss is an unexpected event that could easily have hurt someone but did not, in the end, cause anyone harm. It is also called a “close call” for the same reason. The more near misses found, the more likely an injury will occur.
While it’s essential for manufacturers to recognize certain safety hazard facing their workers, it’s more important for them to take action to protect them. One of the first steps manufacturers can take toward employee safety to ensure that all new workers are comprehensively trained on their job responsibilities and various safety techniques. They should know what PPE to wear, how to maintain or service heavy machinery, proper lockout/ tagout procedures and any other need-to-know workplace safety information.
