ABUS industrial safety

Each year around 670 people die in industrial accidents, while more than a million suffer injuries, many of them serious. Therefore, it is very important to take a preventive approach to safety in the workplace.

Particularly in industry, where employees handle toxic chemicals, high temperatures, large machines or sharp-edged tools, the risk of accidents is extremely high. A fire in a furnace can quickly get out of control, explosive materials can catch fire, people can become trapped under falling rubble or caught in machines. Once it gets to this stage, there is little that can be done – all too often, help arrives too late.

Yet even simple precautions and safety products, which are simple to integrate into the everyday workplace environment, can be effective in preventing accidents and protecting your employees.
