Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with Ai Group, has released the latest edition of the Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety, this year with interactive augmented reality capabilities.

Safe Work Australia has reported on some of the most common hazards faced in metal manufacturing factories or workshops. These include falling from heights, being run over by a forklift, having something fall on workers (for example from cranes or hoists), electrocution, and hands or body parts being caught in machinery.

This year’s Guide is designed to increase safety awareness and compliance within the metal manufacturing industry and address some of the most common hazards faced by workers on a daily basis. The Guide covers a range of topics, including:

  • Manual handling of heavy and light loads, and transporting these loads.
  • Machine-guarding safety.
  • Workplace traffic management.
  • Hierarchy of controls.

The augmented reality aspect of the Guide creates a space for users to experience and access further information by using the Pro-Vis AR free app. Content and information become interactive and much more engaging, promoting safety as a priority and not something to take lightly.

“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Metal Manufacturing Industry Guide to Safety 2017,” said John Hutchings, CEO of Pro-Visual Publishing. “Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge.”
