Industrial labels vital for incident prevention

28th October 2013 - Fine Cut

The fast-paced and stressful nature of everyday operations for many businesses in the UK means that there is very little time to focus on some strategies that are equally important.

Health and safety is one area that is often overlooked by businesses, which can leave members of staff and - in some cases - the public in danger.

However, having an effective strategy in place to prevent such incidents does not have to be a difficult and drawn out process for managers. Doing so could actually save them time and money in the long term, while ensuring employees feel safer in their working environment.

At Fine Cut, our dedicated team of engineers understands how busy businesses are. For this reason, we ensure that all of our products are produced to the highest quality, making sure that firms have one less thing to worry about.

Our industrial labels can be utilised to serve several purposes, meaning that potentially dangerous equipment is clearly identified at all times.

We have a varied range of both standard industrial labels and custom-printed industrial graphics that can be used to fit the needs of your business. And not only that, our sales team can provide detailed information on how to achieve the best finish for your application.

Companies that fail to prioritise health and safety standards in their workplaces could be at increased risk of prosecution. 

A corrugated cardboard manufacturer based in Ellesmere Port has been fined £4,000 plus legal fees of £7,053 after its failings resulted in a member of staff sustaining crush injuries to his hand and breaking his arm.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) found that Prowell had left an unguarded gap on a second-hand machine at its factory, something that could have been prevented to avoid the incident.

HSE inspector Lisa Bailey said: "It should have carefully considered the consequences of removing the control panel and power pack when the machine was first installed at the factory and assessed the risks to workers."
