10-15% of fatal workplace accidents occur during maintenance operations according to EU-OSHA. Occupational diseases and health problems such as asbestosis, cancer, hearing problems and musculoskeletal disorders are also more prevalent among workers involved in maintenance activities. Brady proposes 3 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 maintenance 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.
