  • Valves enhance machine and worker safety

    It is easy to say that "Safety is everyone's goal," but what is really meant by that? Sound workplace safety practices can reduce the risk of injury to not only machine operators but to other people such as maintenance technicians. Sound workplace safety practices can also reduce the risk of accidental damage to machinery and other company assets, or harm to the environment. Common industry standards acknowledge that there is no such thing as zero risk, but nonetheless provide guidance to machine builders and operators regarding how to minimize risks. This is commonly referred to as machine safeguarding. Here's a look at some key factors.
