3 Warning Signs of Dangerous Hazards in Manufacturing

Industrial Hazards are more common than many people think. The big cases get the publicity, but there are many smaller incidents that occur before an extreme case is newsworthy.

In many cases, since the overall cost of safety is not seen in the bottom line, companies try to cut corners by implementing the minimum acceptable safety standards to “just get by”.

5 Things You Should Know to be More Competitive in your Manufacturing Processes

As applications for new and innovative products are continually expanding, manufacturing is faced with added environmental regulations, as well as compressed margins to meet demand. Thus, plants must constantly drive to improve their competitiveness by streamlining their operations and reducing costs wherever possible. When industrial processes are designed with Energy Savings in mind, production, safety and cost efficiencies are all increased to create higher profits and better competitive positioning.
