Safety and Security Tips for a Manufacturing Facility

The manufacturing industry is rife with safety risks, both visible and hidden. Maintaining a safe working environment in your facility is crucial for your employees’ well-being and your continued productivity. Whether predictable or unforeseen, accidents not only cost money but may result in a loss of trained workers and decreased productivity. The following tips are just a few ways to ensure safety is at the forefront of your industrial processes.

Follow an integrated approach 

From CCTV and intrusion systems to fire alarms and access control, all security measures will only operate at optimal efficiency when used in an integrated manner. You must have a central control room where operators can keep track of the security alerts coming from different areas on the plant. This simple technique will result in quicker response time, efficient monitoring, less false alarms, and more situational awareness.

Automated verification of vehicles

Automatic verification of vehicles at the entrance and exit will increase productivity while reducing the risk of theft. Pre-fed data in the system, including the driver’s name, license plate number, company name, and contact number should be used to validate the entry and exit of each vehicle. 


Regular worker training

All factory workers should be extensively trained in handling equipment and using current technology at the manufacturing site. They should be able to identify potential risks, evaluate the consequences, and determine ways to reduce them.  

Continuous evaluation

The process of manufacturing results in constant change. For example, a loose electrical connection here or there can cost you money, productivity, or, worse, a worker. Stress vigilance in your workers to be on the lookout for issues and regularly evaluate your safety and security programs to assure effectiveness. Always remember that being proactive is the key!
