Industrial machine guarding to protect your employees and warehouse machines
Industrial machine guarding offers many benefits in the workplace. Moving machine parts have the potential to cause severe workplace injuries, such as crushed fingers or hands. Safeguards such as industrial machine guards are essential for protecting workers from injuries such as: amputations, burns, or blindness. Any machine part, function, or process that may cause injury must be safeguarded. When the operation of a machine or accidental contact injure the operator or others in the vicinity, the hazards must be eliminated.
Preventing injuries with industrial machine guards
Mezzanine systems and wire mesh partitions are ideal for protecting storage and personnel above the plant floor. The systems help prevent accidents while allowing supervision to have unobstructed views of the area. These guard railings also work in applications such as catwalks and areas above machinery for maintenance access.
Traditional woven wire and innovative welded wire partitions have been extensively used in machine guarding in manufacturing and industrial applicatios. Our wire mesh partitions are used as robotic enclosures, welding enclosures, and machine guarding for vertical lifts and other conveyor systems.
Based on US Department of Labor Statistics, approximately 3 workplace fatalities occur every day from contact with objects and equipment. With robotic and automated machinery in place in the manufacturing environment, it is more important now than ever to properly separate personnel from machinery.
