OEA Safeguard focuses on creating safer workplace environments for your employees and your visitors and extending the life of your equipment. An investment in safety can also lead to a reduction in damaged product and operational assets and work-related injury claims.
Our engineers have worked with manufacturing, operations and safety teams across the globe to develop safety solutions that can be applied to your facility, machinery and vehicles. Keeping your equipment maintained is a vital step in keeping your workforce safe. Did you know the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported more than 888,200 nonfatal, work-lost injuries recorded by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in 2019 alone? If you factor in injuries that did not result in lost work hours, there were more than 2.8 million.
So many companies are understaffed, and many employees wear multiple hats, completing tasks and functions outside of their level of training or experience every day. This can lead to accidents and damage to equipment, creating an even larger strain on resources. Check out statistics on forklift accidents here.
