Talking safety is vital because injury and illness rates in the plastics industry are higher than they should be. Accidents involving injection molding machines may result in cuts, bruises, burns, electric shock, amputations, avulsions, and even fatalities. The effects of a workplace injury are felt not only by the person injured, but by family members, co-workers, and others. However, injuries and fatalities can be avoided through established safety procedures and adequate training.
