Safety in Manufacturing Today
Throughout the history of manufacturing, industrial plants have had issues with safety and security risks. Over the decades, manufacturers have implemented measures to improve the safety of workers. Safety and security continue to be essential factors to protect skilled workers, as well as avoiding lost productivity and financial ramifications. The following are ways manufacturers are addressing the security and safety today.
Security procedures have proven to be far more effective when you practice an integrated approach. The coordination of surveillance cameras, alarm systems, and access control need to be managed from a central control room to track alerts from different sectors of your facility. With this aligned approach you will see increases in response time and monitoring efficiency with fewer false alarms and heightened evaluation of the situation.
Vehicle Verification Automation
An automated vehicle verification program reduces risk and data manipulation. Your facility security is increased when each vehicle’s approved data, such as driver’s name, license plate number, company name, and contact number is verified at the point of entry and exit.
The proper training in the operation of equipment and technology in the manufacturing process is critical to worker safety. In addition to increasing safety, productivity and quality are also improved.
Ongoing Review and Evaluation
Just as manufacturing has evolved, so does security procedures and technology. Your safety and security processes need to be updated to improve safety and security, as well as profitability.
