SPI and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) developed training materials to assist in providing plastics industry employers with information and guidance that will help them protect employees, specifically in identifying and eliminating hazards likely to result in amputations, emphasizing machine guarding and lockout/tagout. The materials were developed under an alliance SPI and OSHA had to promote a safe and healthy work environment in plastics facilities.
