Established in 1996 as an annual occurrence, this year National Safety Month will highlight a different safety topic for each week in June. Spearheaded by the National Safety Council, the organization is focused on Emergency Preparedness, Wellness, Falls, and Driving.
Work safety is of paramount importance, especially in manufacturing plants. When accidents occur, employees are left to file workers’ compensation claims. Preventable mishaps lead to higher insurance costs for employers, and lost productivity on the floor. Thus, employers have an obligation to promote work safety among workers and colleagues.
Central Metal Fabricators, Inc. takes employee safety seriously. Our internal safety programs cascade the latest safety standards to our personnel through video demonstrations screened during monthly meetings.
Moreover, CMF runs drug-free testing for all employees upon hiring. Initial screenings help to avoid the potential pitfalls and consequences of plant machines run by any worker under the influence. Given that manufacturing equipment can prove potentially harmful to distracted employees, the importance of this program cannot be underestimated.
In addition, CMF runs continuous training programs for employees tasked with handling possibly dangerous equipment such as press breaks and large metal-bending machines. Our most experienced employees are assigned to these machines, minimizing the dangers of accidents that may be caused by a less experienced hand.
CMF also provides safety equipment to minimize potential injuries during work. For example, our team enforces the use of automated safety helmets. Face shields protect vision and any potential eye damage to welders using our welding machines.
Founded in 1948 and headquartered in Miami, FL, CMF manufactures gas turbine silencers, gas turbine silencer components, and provides gas turbine silencer services. Our other industrial products include dampers for gas turbines and turbine enclosures, boiler accessories and casings, busbars, steel hoppers, storage tanks, filtration systems, enclosure panels and doors, and acoustical-thermal panels, turbulators, and turning vanes. We also provide engineering design services for sheet metal fabrication, parts replacement, flux core arc welding, gas metal arc welding, and shielded metal arc welding services.
