The manufacturing industry uses heavy machinery and chemicals to transform materials into new products. This month's focus centers on manufacturing safety, so here are a couple tips on keeping your workers safe in the battery manufacturing industry.
One of the main health concerns of battery manufacturing is exposure to lead. Even short-term exposure can lead to serious and deadly chronic health problems. To avoid lead exposure, all workers should be instructed on how to properly wear personal protective equipment.
Another way to pursue manufacturing safety is for employers to follow all Hazard Communication Standards, including labels, classification and informative training sessions on how to identify potential hazards.
