IDEM Machine Safety By Industry Sectors
Warehouse & Logistics
Leveraging warehouse automation solutions can help warehouses increase productivity and accuracy, reduce labour costs and improve safety.
Working in Pharmaceutical manufacturing can be very dangerous, especially if the right precautions are not followed.
Food & Beverage
The food & beverage industry is under constant pressure to meet rising consumer demand. This means increased production while improving on quality and variety.
In an automotive industry, the factory floors are busy and bustling places of manufacturing robots and equipment. They contain moving machinery and thousands of workers, and both work in collaboration.
Aggregates & Mining
The mining industry over the past 2 decades have adopted machine safety programs with interventions and control technologies.
Many hazards and injuries can result from the use of robots in the workplace. Some robots, notably those in a traditional industrial environment, are fast and powerful.
