The Journal for Employee Protection
The variety of machinery and pipes in need of regular maintenance requires beverage companies to have several specialised teams of employees and contractors, who need to be equipped with the proper tools to safely service machinery. Read how to make machine interventions safer and more efficient at a large beverage company!
Beverage production can involve the use
of caustic chemicals such as phosphoric acid and 4-methylimidazole. Hazardous
or asphyxiant gases like Carbon Dioxide and Ozone can be present in an
elaborate piping system as well as other substances that can pose chronic or
acute health hazards. The use of chemical substances at various processing
stages and of additives in both food and drink products increased greatly in
the last decades, and maintenance interventions had to adapt.
Next to this, the increasing levels of
mechanisation and robotisation have introduced a growing number of large,
automated machines with a high number of moving parts.
For maintenance and cleaning operations,
pipe contents and moving machine parts must be neutralised to avoid employees
getting exposed to dangerous substances or caught in powerful machinery. While
machines are guarded whenever possible, many machines used in the sector often
have dangerous moving parts to which it is difficult to fit adequate guards.
In order to operate safely, switching
the power off before touching even the smallest moving part of any machine has
become a necessity. In addition, operators are encouraged to call in properly
qualified mechanics to deal with technical problems rather than trying to deal
with them themselves.
A large brewery with several sites needs
a solution to neutralise machinery and to secure energy sources and pipe valves
in the off-position for increased safety during maintenance. The customer
requires this solution to be implemented at all sites for a large number of
teams, including specialised employees and contractors.
