Safety while maintenance

Technology helps an industry to grow but it is a proven fact that technology can give the best results only when people are ready to achieve the best out of it. People can and will give their best only when their personal welfare is well attended, i.e. when safety is ensured at work. Studies have shown that accidents occur mainly due to unsafe actions, unsafe conditions and negligence. Today, the textile industry is equipped with complicated and fast-moving production machines; so it is necessary that everyone has the correct information and knowledge about these machines, and that everyone follows safety precautions in order to prevent accidents. Hence, an accident is an unplanned and unexpected event that causes (or is likely to cause an) injury to a person and/or damage to property and environment.
