ProGMA Releases New Videos on Protective Guarding
The Protective Guarding Manufacturers Association (ProGMA), a product group within trade association MHI, has added new videos to it’s series of educational videos about the importance of protective guarding products in the material handling industry.
Overhead conveyors can be a good way to efficiently transport materials, but proper guarding is needed to fully ensure worker safety. The video “Prevent Industrial Accidents from Overhead Conveyor System” discusses different types of guarding, along with pros and cons, so that you can keep your people, products, and machinery safe.
As a busy area, loading docks can have hazards if not properly monitored and guarded. In the video “Prevent Accidents & Injuries near Loading Docks/Doors”, they discuss how guarding, such as bumpards, wheel guides, and dock cages, can protect assets and people.
