Are Your Employees Compromising the Safety of Your Machines?

It is not unusual to see employees in enterprises circumventing safety guards or allowing machines to operate after eliminating or neutralizing the technologies that ensure emergency shut-offs.

The case of the company TransPavé inc. which is currently garnering much media attention, is undoubtedly the best example of what not to do. This first case under Bill C-45 targets administrators who can be charged under the criminal code because of negligence regarding health and safety on machines.

Each machine in your environment must be the subject of a detailed assessment of the risks it represents during use, maintenance, and even repairs. Energy sources, access to dangerous areas, and anticipated movements must all be the subject of a detailed plan in order to prevent injuries, which are often serious and may be fatal, to the operators of these machines.

Ignorance is not a reason that justifies inaction. Don’t play with your life or that of someone else! Please contact our prevention and training department at 1-888-864-7954.
