Environmental Health & Safety
Electronic and non-electronic machine guarding systems related to the operation of metal forming and fabricating machinery, welding systems and metal cutting equipment. Also personal protective equipment (PPE), air handling systems, scrap and waste disposal systems, reporting systems and other devices and techniques used for OSHA and EPA regulatory compliance.
As OSHA increases its interest in enforcing the safety of temporary workers, manufacturers that hire temporary workers will find greater federal scrutiny that could make the practice less profitable than it once was.
Studies show that only 60 percent of the 20 million employees required to wear eye and face protection actually comply. The consequence to this is an increase in eye injuries and their associated human and economic costs. Here is some of the newest PPE available to address this lack of protection.
The Comfort Weld™ Anti-Fatigue Welding Mat from Aleco guards against sparks and hot metal and enables welders to stand comfortably for long periods of time with no pain and fatigue.
The new copper finish OXWELD cutting tips from ESAB match the performance of chrome plated tips and are manufactured without the related environmental impact.
