Occupational Health and Safety in the Manufacturing Industry

Occupational health and safety in manufacturing settings such as plants and factories is a growing concern for employers and industry leaders. Between the inherent health and safety risks of the job— which include, but are not limited to, loud and dangerous machinery, dust and other airborne particles, close quarters, and chemical discharge — and the push for safer workplaces, occupational health services and solutions are becoming even more important than ever before. Working with an experienced occupational health and safety service provider is one of the easiest ways to make sure your workplace is up to code and prepared to protect employees day in and day out, no matter what type of manufacturing your site focuses on.

Improve Health and Safety in Manufacturing Environments

Staying on track for production goals is critical in a world that thrives on Just-In-Time manufacturing. Unfortunately, workplace accidents and illness can impair productivity, setting back your production schedule. In addition to the root priority of keeping workers out of harm's way, this is why health and safety in manufacturing environments is essential. Making sure you have the on-site medical services and proactive resources available to prevent or assist in health or medical emergencies keeps employees healthy, happy, and efficient.

On-site services to promote health and safety in manufacturing settings:

  • Biological monitoring: Particle and chemical discharge are harmful risks in many manufacturing environments. Keep an eye on your employees and catch exposures before they become serious problems.
  • Hearing protection: It's no secret that machinery is loud. Sometimes, no matter how much insulation is available, the noise can't be drowned out. Make sure you're protecting your employee's long-term hearing health.
  • Respiratory protection: Without our breath, we can't survive for any period of time. By providing respiratory protection for your team, you can make sure they stay healthy and productive on the job, no matter what airborne particles they may encounter.
  • Substance abuse testing: It is essential that individuals be at the peak of attentiveness when working with heavy machinery. Check for possible impairment or past substance abuse to make sure your team is alert enough to handle all on-site equipment.
  • Large-scale vaccination & testing: Germs spread quickly when working in close quarters on factory floors. Make sure your team stays safe. Limit the spread of exposures and reduce risk with testing and vaccinations.

While these are not the only on-site medical services offered by Mobile Medical Corporation, they are some of the most sought-after for employers and site managers looking to improve the health and safety in manufacturing environments.

Health and safety responsibilities of manufacturer employers

It is the employer's responsibility to keep employees as safe as possible while on the clock. Not only does providing for and protecting your employees bode well for productivity, it also protects your bottom line. By providing on-site occupational health, safety, and wellness services, it is easier to meet complex insurance requirements. Employers who are unsure of where to start should contact us. We can perform an on-site audit and expose the occupational health and safety risks that may stop you from getting the best insurance rates.
