Production safety | Improving safety by discharging its responsibilities

Mr. Chen also stressed that the control of fire using must be enhanced in accordance of Fire Prevention System and its usage must be carried out according to working process application; the grinding and CNC Machining of aluminum-magnesium alloy shops must be equipped with fire extinguishers designed for metal fire rather than the powder type or water; fire fighting with water in DIE casting shop is not allowed; the fire caused by cooking oils or electric factors cannot be fought with water.

Mr. Wu Yan, the head of the Safe Production Department of the company, summed up at the end of the drill that this June marks the 20th State Production Month on the subject of improving safety by discharging its responsibilities.

Safety is the top priority for us, without safety, we would lose everything and nobody could undo what has happened in industrial accidents and occupational diseases. This is why the management needs to lead by example and require its subordinates to change their mindsets from positive safety to active safety. Hopefully, everyone keeps complying with the rules and regulations of the company and doing well in safety education and training, hazards checking and removing and safety improvements to the plant and so on. Please remember: live has no dress rehearsals as you live only once!
