Safety is a top priority at Heat and Control
Our comprehensive product safety program provides helpful tools for customers to
maintain the safe operating condition of our equipment. A safe
production environment delivers many valuable benefits, and
through this partnership in safety, we help our customers:
- Protect employee health and safety
- Reduce production downtime
- Control rising insurance costs
We have designed and manufactured food processing machinery
for over 50 years, and know how to make our equipment safe for
operators and maintenance personnel.
Every machine we manufacture is subjected to a thorough product
safety review and risk assessment by engineering, manufacturing
and management during the design stage and again before it ships.
These procedures include preparation of a Product Safety Drawing
(PSD) that identifies all machine safety devices and features.
The PSD is signed-off by Heat and Control and the customer prior
to start-up to verify that all safety-related features and systems are
in place and have not been damaged or compromised during
shipping or installation. It is also a powerful tool for instructing
operators and maintenance personnel on the location, purpose,
importance and maintenance of each item.
Long after the original start-up, the PSD is an important tool for
customers to use in training new personnel in the safe operation
and maintenance of the machinery, and in conducting periodic
inspections to insure that all machine safety features are always
As an added benefit, the PSD can also be used to demonstrate your commitment to safety to your insurance carrier, which can impact insurance rates.
From design, to manufacture and start-up, then throughout the life cycle of your Heat and Control equipment, we are here to help your employees use our equipment safely.
