Not only have we had the hottest years since the weather was recorded, but also an accumulation of violent thunderstorms and rainfalls in the form of hail and torrential rain. Even tornadoes are being sighted more and more frequently. What demands do these weather phenomena make on the safety of your machines and systems?
With Industry 4.0, new technologies have also found their way into everyday working life. Humans and machines are working together closer and closer and production processes are becoming increasingly networked.
Not all employees these days are able to look forward to a peaceful Christmas holiday and a few days off. When manufacturing stops, maintenance rolls up its sleeves. Machines are reconstructed, and “time pressure” is a latent companion. This can quickly lead to inattentiveness or even carelessness. Hardly anyone considers occupational safety and health.
The chapter “Maintenance” is an integral part of operating instructions. In the case of extensive regular work, the machine often even comes with its own maintenance instructions. Components must be oiled or checked at a weekly basis in accordance with the maintenance schedule.
