Sharing Knowledge Programme

Program Overview

The transformation of the country’s economic sector from an agriculture-based economy to an industrial-based economy has increased the use of machinery in the manufacturing sector. This has positive and negative impact on workers.

Although it can improve productivity, the increased use of machinery also raised the issue of safety of workers. Many reports on industrial accidents attributed the cause of accident to the use of machinery, including the press machine, which is widely used in the steel and automotive industries.

This scenario is observed from cases reported to SOCSO and DOSH. Analysis of the report found that the most common type of accidents involved upper limb injuries which include hands and fingers. Amputation or serious injury usually results from accidents caused by trapping between the pinch points (point-of-operation) of a power press.

This course provides advices on precautions that could be taken in ensuring the safe use of power presses.
