Safety is key
When machines are required to produce more, it is all the more essential to consider the safety of the operator as well as the members of the public. The increased productivity of a machine means that the operator has to work more and spend more of his time near machines. This has a variety of safety implications.
Ensuring Product Safety
CHEM and its members have an uncompromising policy of continuous review of the safety standards of their products and expeditious implementation of improvements. The safety of the products manufactured by members is assured by way of:
