Safety codes put out by OSHA and other organizations can be a nightmare for manufacturing companies. However, growing with the world of technology seems to offer some of the best answers to the problem.
The Use of Robotic Technology
The use of robots can reduce the risk of workplace injury quite effectively. Robots can do many jobs that are too dangerous for humans.
Going On Guard
Safeguarding machines and the workplace is now the standard instead of the exception. By utilizing effective safety measures, companies can now remain in compliance with many of the newer, stricter standards and protocols.
Lasers are now being used to guide machines and to utilize brakes and other safeguards. The lasers are more effective and rule out the possibility of human error.
Alternative Protective Measures
Alternative Protective Measures are now being implemented in situations where old “lockout/tagout” protocols have started to become too time-consuming. Some of these measures can be performed through the use of robotics, eliminating the need to cut power to the entire line.
The use of automation has reduced the risk of injury to employees and also increased the efficiency of the system, saving manufacturers both time and money.
