Safety is imperative in the metal manufacturing industry. This is why Pro-Visual Publishing, along with the Australian Industry Group, has released its newest edition of the Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety. Pro-Visual Publishing aims to highlight the numerous safety precautions that can be implemented to reduce or eliminate any risks that could potentially arise in the workplace.

Hands are the most important tools in the manufacturing industry. Injuries can occur at any time, which is why it is essential to classify hand protection as a major safety priority in industries where tools, machinery and chemicals pose a significant hazard. This year’s guide focuses on implementing key measures when it comes to designing cranes and hoists. The majority of accidents are a direct result from incorrectly installed cranes and poorly trained operators. By instigating proper procedures, managers can eliminate dangers in the workplace.



Guarding can be used as a control measure to prevent any access to the danger point of the machine. That is why it is vital that employees receive the appropriate training to manage or operate machinery. Fatigue, lighting and noise are just the few issues that can cause harm to operators. Safety must be established throughout all avenues in the metal manufacturing industry.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2014/15. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
