Last week Presona held a one-day baler safety training course for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and whilst many companies dread these occurrences, we embrace them as safety is our top priority.
The training will help their team to implement effective procedures to baler users across a range of industries including waste management, recycling, logistics and manufacturing.
With a focus on avoiding industrial accidents, the HSE wanted to better understand the key points required to keep operators of fully automatic balers safe. They asked our team to highlight these and demonstrate best operating practices.
Our team explained essential safety measures and also highlighted typical transgressions that can result in safety compromises when working with this type of baling equipment.
Feedback from the course showed that the HSE delegates found the training really informative and useful. They’ll now use this knowledge to ensure that correct procedures are in place on sites around the country.
We’re delighted to support HSE and look forward to doing so again. Together we can make industrial places a much safer place to work, specifically protecting those that work around big plant like our balers.
And that’s just one example of what we mean when we say: “we see a world where recycling just works” ...... and safely. 😉
