Heavy Machinery Safety Standards

Machinery has been a part of the United States manufacturing process since the Industrial Revolution. As productivity boomed, so did the number of accidents, injuries, and deaths related to the operation of heavy equipment. Laws, regulations, standards, and codes were, and continue to be, introduced to help minimize accidents and maintain a safe workplace.  Many CED experts have real-life, practical experience designing, manufacturing, managing, and maintaining industrial machinery.
