Enhancing Employee Safety

When was the last time you heard about mechanical insulation at a safety meeting? Insulation systems can be a vital component in applications related to life safety, such as applications for commercial kitchen ducts, return air plenums, protection of power and communication conduit trays, and other similar appliances.

Protecting workers from contact with hot or cold surfaces should be a focus of any safety program, along with protecting workers from excessive equipment and workplace noise.   

The role of mechanical insulation in providing a safe work environment is seldom considered.

Far beyond the impact on a company’s bottom line is the very direct impact on its employees’ well-being.

Can you think of a more important topic or better reason to think about insulation differently?
