Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2015/16 – Released

MMA9-5-Chart-Image-72dpiWithin the metal manufacturing industry, injuries can occur at anytime; therefore it is essential for workers to be well-informed and up-to-date with safe practices. As a result, Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with Australian Industry Group, has released the 2015/16 edition of the Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety aimed to highlight specific health and safety risks associated with metal manufacturing and how to reduce these risks.

A Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU) has a primary duty to ensure they are protecting the health and safety of any person from risks that might arise from the work conducted. These duties include ensuring correct manual handling when transporting equipment. This will reduce risks that will likely cause injuries in the workplace as materials are commonly moved in and out from workstations and worksites. Consideration needs to be taken on how to safely aid the transportation of these materials.

Incorrect use of hand tools increases the risk of injuries, causing users to experience Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs). When using hand tools, it is important to consider factors such as poor task, tool and workstation design as well as poor tool maintenance, which will help reduce the risk of hand injuries.

I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2015/16. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
