Steel safety tips

Precautionary safety tips when working with steel.

Installing emergency controls: In order to prevent accidents, emergency restraint and closure safety controls must be installed on the plate rolling machine.

Skilled and Experienced Operator: Like any other sheet metal forming process, sheet metal rolling must be performed by skilled and certified personnel. Because he knows how to operate the machine correctly and is aware of the dangers.

Perform regular maintenance and repairs: There are many moving mechanical components in a metal rolling machine that are subject to wear and tear over time.

Maintenance and repair can be performed to improve performance; but they can also help to avoid accidents. Therefore, repair and maintenance are precautionary here.

Wear personal protective equipment (PPE): The operator must wear personal protective equipment (PPE) such as workshop apron, gloves, hard hat and heat protection. and anti-spark lenses, etc. The use of PPE is very important to reduce the chance of an accident. It is important to dress appropriately as loose
clothing can get caught in the rollers or be exposed to high temperatures.

To avoid operator accidents, PPE and clothing must be taken care of. In addition, the operator should avoid wearing loose or fancy jewelry when working with such equipment and sheet metal. Because loose jewelry can get caught in the device or even melt due to increased temperature, which can lead to accidents.

Safe working distance: The operator should work at a safe distance on the plate rolling machine, especially when loading plate between hot rollers. Since the machine consists of many moving mechanical components, the operator must not come into contact with moving components.

Environmental safety: The environment of the plate rolling mill must be in good condition. . There should be no
temperature-reactive objects or chemically-reactive materials nearby to avoid accidents.

Sheet Metal Safety Precautions

It is important to be careful when handling equipment, but caution is required when working with sheet metal. Below are some individual safety precautions when working with sheet metal.

  1. Prevent cuts and lacerations: Sharp edges are one of the most immediate hazards when working with sheet metal. the formed blades are smoothed, but during the manufacturing process the edges
    remain sharp. Therefore, the hot metal blade can cut an operator's flesh and cause open lacerations if not handled with care. The operator must wear gloves and protective clothing to prevent the ground skin from running on the sheets.

This allows toxic fumes or dust particles to escape and bring fresh air into the room. In addition, the work area should have exhaust fans and other necessary equipment to remove smoke or other toxic gases.
