AFS publishes health and safety guide.
The American Foundry Society (AFS) recently published the fourth edition of its health and safety guides.
The AFS Health and Safety Committee (10-Q) created the newest edition of the guides to provide metalcasters with updated information necessary to determine, evaluate and control potential hazards. The committee members are all experts in health and safety, with certifications in multiple areas.
The guide contains information on five categories: melting and pouring, binder systems, physical hazards, other health hazards, and safety and health programs and controls. It was written particularly for meta casting industry personnel, occupational health and safety professionals, those responsible for regulatory compliance and academic professionals.
To purchase the guide, visit the store on the AFS website, www.afsinc.org.
