How Safety Procedures Factor into All that We Do
With June being designated as National Safety Month by the National Safety Council, it’s the perfect opportunity to discuss the importance of safety procedures to ensure the best working environment.
Even though June is all about safety, we are concerned with safety every day of the year.
Safety within a manufacturing environment poses some interesting challenges. One of the most important aspects of any safety system is the necessary procedures and policies for all employees to be aware of and follow. All safety procedures are designed to prevent accidents and protect employees.
We offer training classes to ensure that machine operators, including forklift drivers, know how to use the machinery properly and safely. Material handling personnel are taught the proper way to left and transport materials throughout the plant to prevent injury to themselves or others.
We also require all production floor workers to wear proper attire and personal safety equipment.
These items may consist of safety glasses or goggles, ear protection, hard hats, and sturdy shoes. Loose fitting clothing and jewelry are discouraged as these could lead to accidents if they become entangled in equipment.
At our headquarters in Gardena, CA and production facility in Dallas, TX we exceed all OSHA requirements for workplace safety standards. Our employees are our most valuable asset and we strive to make their workplace as safe as possible. As in all aspect of our manufacturing environment and the products we produce, safety is a top priority. All of our components are tested to meet UL, CE, and CSE standards and are RoHS and REACH compliant.
