Eriez Web Site Offers Magnet Safety Information to Decrease Risk of Injury, Damage to Devices

October 3, 2013

The Eriez Web site offers information to educate operators on proper safety precautions and procedures when handling magnetic equipment. This information, provided through Eriez’ Orange University, is available at www.eriez.com/resources/Index/Safetylabels.
“Industrial strength magnetic separators play a very important role in manufacturing facilities across the world. If handled properly, they are a safe, efficient way of removing unwanted ferrous contamination,” says Bill Dudenhoefer, manager—separation products. “If not handled properly, injuries and property damage can occur. Potential injuries include everything from minor pinched fingers to more serious crushed hands and even the loss of extremities.”
In an effort to avoid any magnet-related accidents or damage, the Web site provides detailed magnet safety information regarding awareness, proper magnet handling, transportation and storage, medical devices that could be affected while handling magnets, credit card malfunctions, and permanent damage to electronic devices that come in contact with magnets.

Orange University is an educational resource that includes Eriez’ mobile training center, literature library, free tools, newsletters, videos, articles, the Eriez Technical Center, and more.
