Working with machinery and chemicals is innately a dangerous activity.
Every year, thousands of people are injured in the workplace by machines that do not have proper safety features installed or used properly, or experience chemical burns and illness.
The Federal Government has a set of regulations called CCOHS (Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety) that require employers to provide training for employees on how to safely operate and use potentially dangerous equipment, how to handle and dispose of dangerous chemicals, how to transport dangerous goods, and more.
Serious injuries are common in industrial settings, and it’s important to be prepared. If you’re a company that manufactures products, handles dangerous chemicals, or uses machinery, you need to ensure your employees are working in an environment that is safe. Having a tailored Industrial Safety plan will teach you more than how to identify potential hazards and how they can be prevented or mitigated so no one gets hurt on the job.
