Safety for Assembly

Provided by: ToolingU

Assemblers must wear proper clothing and protective equipment, which varies for different tasks. A safe assembly site is organized and clean, with clear paths around workstations. Working in assembly requires an awareness of electrical, forklift, and point of operation safety precautions, as well as proper fall prevention and tool handling procedures. Applying ergonomics to assembly helps prevent injury caused by repetition, poor posture, and excessive force. Before beginning any assembly work, assemblers must know the appropriate safety precautions and be trained to use required protective equipment. This can be challenging because there are different precautions for different tasks.
