Whether it’s made of paper, plastic, rubber or metal, the manufacturing industry generates an enormous amount of goods that we, as consumers, depend on daily. And despite recent trends toward automation, humans remain at the center of manufacturing processes.
With the U.S. Department of Labor reporting, “four in every 100 manufacturing workers are injured or become ill on the job every year,” it’s clear the day-to-day tasks of handling materials and operating machinery pose a multitude of threats. Additionally, many companies still promote a culture emphasizing productivity over safety, resulting in serious injuries that often could have been prevented if the proper procedures were in place. Before allowing employees to perform work at any manufacturing facility, it’s important to educate them on the hazards and regulations specific to their line of manufacturing.
Although important, just being aware of hazards and regulations isn’t enough to keep your workforce safe. Having and properly using the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) is a critical aspect of your safety program. The experts at ORR Safety will partner with you to find the right PPE to keep your employees safe.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, in 2018 there were 18 fatalities in the primary metal manufacturing industry and 12 in the plastics and rubber products manufacturing industry. OSHA regulations such as the ones listed below have resulted in the decline of these numbers over the years. But even one injury is too many.
