Safety at Work in Manufacturing and Industry: Pipe Hangers Help Keep Everyone Safe by Ensuring Piping Stays Secure and in Place

caylor-about-us imageNational Safety Month is being celebrated this month (June), but safety is something businesses and manufacturing industries focus on, or should be focusing on, all year long. A recent article from SafetyandHealth.com offers several tips for safety leaders in business and industry. The article recommends that the people responsible for creating the “safety culture” in organizations should conduct some type of “physical hazard identification system.” The article says, “Even if workers are practicing safe behaviors and doing everything correctly, they still may be at risk from a hazard without realizing it. Supervisors can mitigate this by broadening their visual scan beyond workers’ actions to look for potential exposures in surrounding conditions and equipment.”

In any workplace, but especially in manufacturing and industry, workers’ surrounding environments most likely include some type of piping, though we don’t often think or hear about it as part of a company’s “safety culture.” National Safety Month is a good time to be reminded about some of the behind-the-scenes details and items that play a big role in workplace safety, like the pipe hangers, tube hangers and other industrial hardware and components that help to contribute to a safe work environment.

Pipe hangers and tube hangers are used for a variety of industrial applications and in all building design. Sometimes they’re visible to building occupants, and other times they’re hidden behind ceiling tiles, walls and closed doors. Either way, pipe hangers and tube hangers are doing their job; keeping piping secure, in place, and helping to keep building occupants safe.

At Caylor Industrial Sales, we stock a wide variety of pipe hangers, tube hangers, and we also offer custom hangers. The pipe hangers we supply are used for many different applications and they’re used by just about every industry.
