All manufacturing industries have workplace hazards, and the woodworking sector is no different. Even though the raw material in this instance is completely natural, the various processes involved in cutting, turning, sanding and shaping the wood lead to the production of large volumes of dust which is a marked problem for the safety of workers as well as the factory in general.
The autumn season has arrived, which means after the fall foliage season is complete, the fallen leaves must be cleaned up. This is a big responsibility for local municipalities and towns, commercial property owners, and residential home owners who must make sure their properties are clean in advance of the winter season. To make the cleaning process quick and easy, having the correct tools is important, and at Flexaust we offer a variety of leaf collection hoses that can be used at all levels to make sure all properties are cleaned properly.
Workplace safety should always be on our minds. Many of us spend one-third or more of our day at work, with it coming in only behind your home as where you spend the most time. Every work place should strive to provide the safest working conditions possible, but not everyone keeps it in the front of their minds. This is where National Safety Month comes in.
