SPI, OSHA extend safety program.
The Society of the Plastics Industry in Washington, D.C., has renewed its alliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for a second year and plans to extend the program beyond injection molding to thermoforming and extrusion operations. The goal of the alliance is to help SPI members identify and eliminate workplace hazards. Of particular concern are conditions that can result in amputation injuries and ergonomic hazards.
