Are Machine Safety Concerns Keeping You Up at Night?

With downsizing efforts impacting every industry, the availability of in-house machine-safety expertise has declined. Still, as an employer, you bear the responsibility to provide a safe and compliant work environment for your employees. The stakes are high since machine-safety incidents can result in serious, if not fatal, injuries. The potential for machine-related injuries or regulatory-audit findings should always be at the forefront of your mind. You know your machinery needs to be both safe and compliant, but you’re just not sure how to get there.

Six Commonly Overlooked Machine-Safety Requirements

Is your plant machinery both safe and compliant? Has your company experienced a machine-related injury, a close call, or received a regulatory compliance citation associated with the operation or maintenance of plant machinery? Understanding machine safety requirements can be a complex undertaking. Plant machinery can also be unknowingly hazardous to your employees resulting in serious, if not fatal injuries. These tragic events can also create significant liability for your company.

Provide a safe and compliant working environment.

Take the first step. Ask MPSA to identify your safety and compliance issues. We can do the rest.
