Accuform Hosts Central Florida Chapter

For a recent chapter meeting, the Central Florida Chapter tried something a little different. The chapter held its November 2017 meeting at Accuform, in Brooksville, FL. The company provided an educational technical tour if its manufacturing facility, where chapter members learned about the manufacturing processes behind the company’s safety products, which many chapter members had purchased for their own companies’ facilities.

Chapter members noted that the company’s commitment to safety and employee wellness was evident throughout the tour. Examples included:

  • machine-specific lockout/tagout procedures posted at each workstation;
  • PPE requirements made apparent through signage;
  • employees encouraged to bike to work;
  • safety commitment board where employees share what drives their passion for safety.

While touring the facility, chapter members were able to benchmark safety practices and identify potential solutions to prevent incidents in their workplaces.

“We are grateful to have a world-renowned safety equipment supplier right here in Central Florida that is willing to promote the profession through networking and support of ASSE members through technical tours like this,” says Chapter President Matt Smith.
