Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey everyone, it’s great to be here today to talk about a really important topic that affects a lot of people who work in manufacturing and construction – the dangers of using a fly press, and some safety recommendations to help keep you safe.

First off, let’s talk about what a fly press is. For those who don’t know, a fly press is a type of machine press that’s used to shape or cut materials. It’s powered by a large, heavy flywheel that’s turned by hand or by a motor. The flywheel builds up a lot of energy, which is then transferred to the material being worked on.

Now, while fly presses can be incredibly useful and efficient tools, they can also be extremely dangerous if not used properly. In fact, according to the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), fly press accidents are one of the leading causes of injury in the manufacturing and construction industries.

So, what are some of the dangers associated with using a fly press? Well, for starters, the sheer force and energy of the machine can be incredibly dangerous. If the material being worked on is not secured properly, it can be ejected from the press with tremendous force, potentially causing serious injury or even death.

In addition to this, the moving parts of a fly press can also be dangerous if not properly maintained or if the operator is not paying attention. If a hand or finger gets caught in the press, it can cause serious injury or even amputation.

So, what can you do to protect yourself and your coworkers when using a fly press? Here are a few safety recommendations to keep in mind:

  1. Always wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). This includes things like safety glasses, gloves, and steel-toed boots. These items can help protect you from flying debris or other hazards associated with using a fly press.
  2. Make sure the material being worked on is secured properly. This means using clamps, vices, or other appropriate devices to hold the material in place. Never try to hold the material with your hands or other body parts.
  3. Keep your hands and fingers away from the moving parts of the press. Never try to adjust or remove the material while the press is still in motion, and never try to reach into the press while it’s running.
  4. Regularly inspect and maintain the press. Make sure all guards and safety devices are in place and functioning properly, and address any maintenance issues as soon as possible.
  5. Train all employees on proper fly press operation and safety procedures. Make sure everyone who will be working with the press is properly trained and understands the potential hazards associated with using it.
  6. Finally, always be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to what you’re doing. Never operate a fly press if you’re tired, distracted, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

By following these safety recommendations and being aware of the potential dangers associated with using a fly press, you can help protect yourself and your coworkers from serious injury. Remember, safety should always be your top priority when working with any kind of machinery, and taking the time to follow proper procedures and guidelines can make all the difference. Stay safe out there, everyone!
