Brady products to reduce workplace related accidents in FM
10-15% of fatal workplace accidents occur during maintenance operations according to EU-OSHA.
Brady, a manufacturer of safety equipment, has launched products that help reduce workplace related accidents for the FM sector.
Occupational diseases and health problems such as asbestosis, cancer, hearing problems and musculoskeletal disorders are quite prevalent among workers involved in maintenance activities, Brady said in a press statement.
“While increasing maintenance safety, it is a good idea to simultaneously improve maintenance efficiency. By applying clear, instructional labels on machines, maintenance workers are immediately aware of best practice steps and procedures to service a specific machine. Together with fewer maintenance interruptions thanks to machine energy isolation and spill control, clear instructional labels can make maintenance more efficient and help companies to return to full production capacity faster,” a spokesperson from Brady told fmME.
Brady proposes three solutions to help make maintenance safer and more efficient: professional safety printers: print self-adhesive safety signs and instructional labels and apply them to machinery before they are serviced. Optimally inform professionals so they can operate safely and efficiently.
Lockout / tagout: isolate machines from their energy supply during maintenance using pre-approved lockout/ tagout procedures, dedicated lockout devices and professional padlocks.
Spill control: prevent spills that occur during maintenance from spreading on the workfloor where they can cause accidents and delays.
