As an influential die casters,LANGOZ recognizes the importance of providing a safe working environment for employees as well as guests.

In recent years, all LANGOZ departments have been awarded industry safety standard as a result of their emphasis on employee safety and well-being.

 
LANGOZ Industries is proud of its employees and their ongoing efforts towards providing a safe working environment for all. Please see below for more detailed information on our recent efforts and achievements:
 
Safety Efforts and Achievements
As part of the lean manufacturing initiative currently underway at LANGOZ,safety gains equal footing with quality and production.
A corporate safety training video was produced to assist with new employee training before entering the production plant.All employees,contractors,and visitors are required to view the video before entering the plant.
During school breaks, Interns are instrumental in assisting with various safety projects.Areas of focus included metal handler safety, new hire orientations, management of safety action items, MSDS administration and emergency action planning.
 
1.Personal Protective Equipment/Material Handling
Personal protective equipment has been upgraded and best practices have been revised and implemented. An example is in metal handling activities.Best practices include the addition of flashing strobe lights to the bull ladles transporting molten alloys from the furnace area to the die cast machines,in addition to flashing strobe lights being added to the furnace rooms to clearly communicate when activities are occurring.
 
2.Forklift Safety
Strobe lights have been installed to forklifts to alert the surrounding environment of an oncoming vehicle, thus preventing the risk of an accident occurring.By increasing the visibility of the forklift, workers can better see approaching traffic.The unit casts a concentrated beam of strobe light just a few feet ahead of the load.
 
3.Fall Protection
Allowing safe access to elevated areas is an important part of a safe operation.Maintenance workers and set-up workers often need access to portions of equipment that are not easily reached with ladders or even aerial lifts. This calls for use of safety harnesses and engineered anchor point. Utilizing state-of-the-art mobile tethers workers can safely attach themselves while performing elevated work.
 
4.Access Restrictions and Protection
Specified pedestrian walkways have been established to help maintain a separation between forklift traffic and plant personnel. In the most traffic areas, barriers have been erected to further safeguard pedestrians,especially those entering and exiting offices.
 
5.Machine Guarding
Improved safety has been achieved by installing perimeter machine guarding that restricts access into the moving portion of the Die Cast machine and ancillary equipment. Interlocked gates allow controlled access for routine process checks. Sensors ensure that safety shields are in place before the machine cycles. By configuring the entire operation into a work cell of interrelated components, entry into the machine is limited to designated “safe entry” locations.
 
6.Lockout/Tagout
Lockout/tagout is a safety procedure used to control hazardous energy. For the protection of employees, red locks and tags are provided with employee names and pictures to identify they are working on hazardous machinery.
 
7.Hazards Communication Program
Safety Data Sheets,or SDS are located throughout the manufacturing plant for easy access to employees working with hazardous materials. SDS for all chemicals is required on-site prior to the start of work.
 
8.New Employee Protection
For the first 30 days of employment, new hires are required to wear an orange safety vest in the plant. This allows co-workers to easily provide guidance as employees become acquainted with the die casting environment.
 
9.Shotscope Safety Checklists
Computer-based safety checklists provide assurance that each worker confirms the safe operation of their machine prior to start-up. Operator-specific log in confirms time and date of inspection. Management can easily access screens that identify by shift where non-conformances are occurring.
