Manufacturing

Services for Health and Safety in Manufacturing

Manufacturing covers a wide range of industries, each with its own specific health and safety considerations, as well as more general hazards found in almost any workplace. Health and Safety Manager has the experience to identify, advise, report and remediate all your health and safety issues, as well as ensure you comply with all relevant health and safety legislation and requirements for the manufacturing industries.

General types of accident in the manufacturing workplace that cause injury include: slipping and tripping, lifting and handling, the dangers of being hit by moving objects, and contact with moving parts of machinery.

There are also occupational ill health considerations in many industries including:

  • Respiratory disease — such as asthma caused by dust and/or fumes,
  • musculoskeletal disorders — from manual handling or repetitive sorting and packing,
  • damage to hearing —  caused by working in noisy environments with inadequate protection,
  • occupational dermatitis — from handling external agents such as cleaning chemicals, solvents, oil, etc.

The manufacturing sector is divided by the HSE into the following subsectors, each of which carries its own health & safety demands and considerations:

  • Cement
  • Ceramics
  • Concrete
  • Engineering
  • Glass & glazing
  • Heavy clay & bricks
  • Laundries and dry-cleaning
  • Leather and footwear

  • Plastics
  • Printing
  • Quarries
  • Refractories

Health and Safety Manager helps implement practical safety measures to minimise risks, both general and sector specific, in each of these areas.
