SGIA, based in Fairfax, Virginia, has announced a Safety Recognition Program to help keep companies in the printing industry from being caught off-guard and subject to hefty fines.
The printing industry is designated as a high-hazard industry for amputations, and businesses are at risk for thousands of dollars in Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) fines if certain requirements are not met. In 2017, OSHA issued more that $1 million in fines for violations in the printing industry.
The program came about as a way to acknowledge the necessity of maintaining a safe working environment. Through it, SGIA helps its members stay out in front of OSHA with an easy-to-implement process and resources. Enrolling in the SGIA Safety Recognition program can give companies and employees tools and processes needed to keep them safe while building a path of compliance.
