SLIPS, FALLS, IMPALEMENT
OSHA training teaches us that slips and falls are among the most common industrial injuries. SPIDERCOOL can help reduce them in several ways.
Many large machines and boring mills require the operator to walk over slippery surfaces, covered in coolant or oil, in order to adjust coolant lines.
When the spindle is 8 feet in the air, operators often use a long stick, or gripper to reach up and adjust the lines while the machine is running. What happens if the guy slips and the stick hits the spindle?
On large VMC’s and bridgemills, reaching the coolant lines may involve climbing on steps, and bending over enough to throw the body’s center of gravity into the unsafe zone.
Finally on any machine, coolant sprays back not only onto the operator, but out onto the floor creating another slippery surface and another safety hazard.
