READ: Eliminate Worry With Safe Work Practices
Other hazards that can be handled by your plant safety contractor include electrical, ventilation, and equipment risk exposure. In addition, product contamination or product safety issues not only tarnish your reputation, they can present health risks to your customers. Product contamination may also carry legal exposure, including criminal charges. Installing new drainage improvements and waste management systems will eliminate bacteria, pests, and other contaminant sources from your production areas. Plant sanitation can be improved through installation of stainless steel trench drains, doors, stairways, catwalks and equipment platforms as well as completion of flooring upgrades using acid proof and microbiological control materials.
Obtaining a complete safety assessment and upgrading your facility to meet strict worker safety and product contamination requirements can be cost effectively achieved with an outside contractor.
As your plant safety contractor, Storee will review your facility for safety concerns, prioritize project risks and improvement costs, and complete safety upgrades with limited plant interruption to improve your safety and contaminant exposure without stopping your production schedule.
Whether you need fabrication and installation of factory safety controls, stainless steel replacements to deteriorating building components, or new construction to protect your manufacturing facility, Storee will help you prioritize your safety improvements and complete the work quickly and efficiently to reduce your exposure to the growing costs of compliance failure.
