Nurturing Safety in the Metal Industry
In the metal industry, safety is a crucial concern. It’s like the golden rule that keeps everyone safe and sound while they work with various metals. At Shyam Metalics, we want every member of our team to feel cared and respected.
So, what’s this safety talk all about?
A set of safety standards governs everything in the metal industry. These rules ensure that no one gets hurt and everyone goes back home safely. We also believe in being kind to each other and treating everyone with respect. That means no matter who you are or where you come from, you’re an important part of our team.
At Shyam Metalics, we foster an environment where everyone looks out for each other. By taking care of our people and following the safety rules, we can shine bright in the industry.
In the metal industry, safety is paramount. Here are some general safety standards we follow as a metal manufacturing company based in India:
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
In metalworking, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is the armour. It includes safety glasses, gloves, ear protection, and appropriate clothing. At Shyam Metalics we use PPE to provide our workforces with the necessary equipment.
Safety glasses and goggles are vital in shielding your eyes from flying debris, chemical burns, or sparks. They are non-negotiable for a safe work environment. Sharp metalworking pieces pose a real threat to your hands. We use the proper gloves to prevent abrasions, burns, and cuts.
Metal-cutting environments often expose workers to hazardous noise levels, which can permanently damage hearing. Protect your ears with earplugs or earmuffs. The choice of clothing is crucial for safety in metalworking. Loose clothing should be avoided, and workers should wear garments that protect against metal splashes, sparks, and radiant heat. At Shyam Metalics we use the right face shields and footwear that are essential for overall protection.
In certain metalworking operations, dust, debris, mist, or harmful toxins can pose serious health risks. Protecting against these airborne hazards involves using respiratory masks with various levels of protection, depending on the application and required safety measures.
Machine guards are crucial for protecting workers from injuries. At Shyam Metalics, we use guards that can be fixed, interlocked, or adjustable, depending on the machine ensuring that these guards are correctly installed and maintained.
Evolving Safety Standards
Shyam Metalics adapts to evolving cutting-edge tool technologies and safety procedures. Consistent maintenance of machines and equipment ensures a safe and productive work environment.
For us, our employees are more than just workers; they are part of the Shyam Metalics family on a unique journey. We strive to provide a safe, healthy, clean, and ergonomic work environment, setting the benchmark for health and safety in the steel industry.
