The manufacturing process holds risks, both visible and hidden. Maintaining a safe working environment in your plant is crucial for your employees’ well-being and continued productivity.
Whether predictable or unforeseen, accidents may also result in a loss of skilled workers and legal ramifications. The following are just a few ways to ensure safety is at the forefront of your manufacturing process.
Follow an Integrated Approach
No matter how well thought out and strict safety procedures are in your facility, you must employ them in an integrated approach. Whether it’s CCTV and intrusion systems or fire alarms and access control, you must have a central control room. This practice will allow operators to keep track of the security alerts coming from different areas on the plant. This simple technique will result in quicker response time, efficient monitoring, less false alarms, and more situational awareness.
Automated Verification of Vehicles
Automatic verification of vehicles at the entrance and exit will improve workplace safety and reduce the chances of data manipulation. Pre-fed data in the system, including the driver’s name, license plate number, company name, and contact number should be used to validate the entry and exit of each vehicle.
Offer Regular Training to the Workers
All factory workers should be extensively trained in handling equipment and technology used in processes. They should be able to identify potential risks, evaluate the consequences, and determine ways to reduce them.
Continuous Evaluation of the Plant
Over time, the operating procedures and equipment in the manufacturing industry continue to change. Remember, a loose electrical connection here or there can cost you money, productivity, or worse, a worker’s life. As you walk through your facility, be aware of your surroundings to evaluate where safety and security measures could be improved.
