FTA & OSHA renew flexo safety goals
The Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) and three other graphic arts associations are once again joining the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in promoting and advocating compliance with work-related health and safety standards to the printing industry. The move mirrors similar steps taken two years ago.
The agreement ensures that the participating associations — referred to as the Graphic Arts Coalition (GAC) — and OSHA will work to provide members of the flexographic printing trade and other graphic arts industries with guidance and access to training resources.
The objective of the agreementis to help protect employees’ health and safety, including ergonomic and safe work practices.
Highlights of the agreement include: speaking, exhibiting or appearing at OSHA or GAC-sponsored conferences such as the FTA’s Info-Flex Exhibition and the National Environmental Health and Safety Conference; sharing information between OSHA personnel and the printing industry regarding best practice of effective approaches; and working together to convene a forum with printing equipment manufacturers and end users to raise awareness about ergonomic concerns related to the interaction between humans and machinery.
