June 2015 Blog: Safety is Part of our Culture
Wisconsin Oven has released their June 2015 blog: Safety is Part of our Culture. Read an excerpt below:
In any manufacturing or working environments, safety is a key focus. Although sometimes only briefly acknowledged, safety should be a universal priority! Providing a safe working environment and employee training programs are means to preventing serious injuries from occurring at work.
As a leading manufacturer of industrial ovens, Wisconsin Oven is well-informed on safety issues and potential dangers. A great many industries rely on equipment for curing, heat treating, drying, and finishing. The basic requirements of industrial ovens (high temperatures, various fuel sources) make them inherently dangerous. It is our business to build safety features into all of the ovens we produce.
Safety features begin at our own facilities when constructing the ovens. We require all of our employees to wear personal protective gear such as safety glasses, welding shields, gloves, respirators during the painting process, and arc flash suits when working on power panels. Our employees receive monthly safety training on a wide-array of topics, which we feel is needed to perform their jobs safely. Each topic is covered at least once annually. We feel attention to our training program, and our employees understanding the importance of compliance, contributes to an injury rate which is extremely low.
