Achieving the expected results, being efficient, improving productivity, meeting customers’ expectations and generating growth are some of the many challenges we face whether working in the industrial sector or in any other type of organisation for that matter. However, this daily dynamic should not make us forget something as important as investing in prevention and concerning us with better job safety.

 

That’s why today we would like to share 5 key elements that will allow us to better understand the importance of approaching this issue from the correct angle:

 

1. First, it’s important to clarify that when we talk about investing in prevention – when we refer to the positive aspects of improving safety at work – we are not only talking about an economic investment. What we mean is that it’s necessary to dedicate time and energy to ensure that it becomes one of the pillars of our organisation and it extends professionally and globally throughout our business.

 

2. Then, it’s important to consider that the correct implementation of occupational safety and prevention measures should define the potential risks of workspaces, take appropriate measures, explain the issue to the workers in that space, and follow-up the matter ensuring it does not generate later complications.

 

3. Similarly, it’s vital to understand that work in occupational safety must be “transversal“: that is, it must cover all areas and levels of the company. All members of the organisation must also incorporate the established parameters to their work.

 

4. Safety at work policies must continually be updated. The work environment is a dynamic space in a constant state of change and where operating parameters can vary or be affected. Therefore, it is essential to keep our safety practices and policies up to date and adjust or correct everything necessary to ensure compliance with the standards established. In this sense, the correct training of employees is also key, as well as the tests of maintenance of competences and the training of the new members of the organisation.

 

5. Finally, we can assure that once we integrate quality policies pertaining job safety, we will not only be protecting the most important thing in our business – which is the integrity of the members of the organisation-, but we will also be adding efficiency and quality to the firm, which will end up having positive effects in the areas of results and productivity mentioned at the beginning of this post.

Bearing that in mind, today we’d like to introduce a new application for the PAS System which, has emerged from the conversations we sustain with our users, and making the most of the diverse options offered by this solid tool. We’ll see how the PAS System can be used to improve the safety in bridge cranes.

 

Located both inside and outside of factories and warehouses, bridge cranes are used to transport materials and loads in vertical and horizontal movements. These devices have one or two mobile beams on rails, which are supported on columns or consoles, and are located along two opposite walls of the rectangular building. The frame of the bridge crane consists of two transverse beams in the direction of the light of the building (main beams) and one or two pairs of lateral beams (front), located lengthwise towards the building, used to fasten to the others and to hold the wheels.

 

The PAS System is applied in a bridge crane as follows:

 

An AC-50 activator is installed on the bridge and a TZ2 on the doors or areas to be indicated. In this way, when the bridge is brought close to a door, the tag activates a luminous beacon that indicates to the trucks and pedestrians that the bridge is nearby, so that they can take all the necessary precautions.

Similarly, forklifts also have an AC-50 activator installed. When approaching a door, the luminous beacon of the door is activated to warn the bridge crane operator, forklift drivers and other operators in the facility that there is an active vehicle in that space.

 

Used in this fashion, the PAS System becomes extremely useful in different warehouse spaces, as well as in loading and unloading areas, and in all types of factories and industries.
