PPE (PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT) AND OTHER PROTECTIVE GEAR
All staff have all the necessary protective equipment as determined by the corresponding Occupational Risk Assessment (clothing, reinforced footwear, glasses, earplugs, and gloves).
Also, the machines have active safety systems that prevent operation if the work area is not isolated.
Proper working conditions are maintained: good lighting, heating, filters for machining mist, ventilation, ample work space, equipment eyewash, and first aid kit. They are also equipped with fire extinguishers and fire alarms.
The machines have EC certification and their external moving parts are identified with tape to protect against getting trapped and hit.
