Guarding Against Hazards

Guarding Against Hazards

Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2017 – Released

metalSafe Work Australia has reported on some of the most common hazards faced in metal manufacturing factories or workshops and these include falling from heights, being run over by a forklift, having something fall on workers (for example from cranes or hoists), electrocution, and hands or body parts being caught in machinery.

In order to increase safety awareness and compliance within this industry and address some of the most common hazards faced by workers on a daily basis, Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with Australian Industry Group (Ai Group), has recently released the latest edition of the Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety, this year with interactive Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities.

This year’s Guide covers a range of topics, including:

· Manual handling heavy and light loads, and transporting these loads.

· Machine guarding safety.

· Workplace traffic management.

· Hierarchy of controls.

The AR aspect of the Guide creates a space for users to experience and access further information by using the free Pro-Vis AR app. Content and information become interactive and much more engaging, promoting safety as a priority and not something to take lightly.

“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2017. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge.”

– John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
