Safety Enhancements

Health and safety are key issues for Bucher Emhart Glass. As a supplier to the Glass industry, it is important for us to develop equipment which makes work safe and provides good working conditions for our customers.

What does this mean for the daily work of Bucher Emhart Glass? As a supplier we conform to the Machine Directive 2006/42/EC.The Machine Directive is an agreement within the European Union that seeks to  unify the health and safety regulations among the member countries and specifies requirements and responsibilities for suppliers of machinery

  • In addition to the Machine Directive, Bucher Emhart Glass meets the Feeder and IS machine standards
  • And, as standard practice, we design our machines to meet both European and other international standards
  • When thinking of hazards at work, we tend to focus on risks that can cause accidents, such as tripping, pinching, burns and other mishaps. However, the most common type of injuries are those caused by repetitive straining. A key part of our machine design, then, needs to focus on making working and around our machines easier and more comfortable. Improvements of ergonomics are essential.

    One of the best examples of ergonomics improvements as the conveyor ladder, which is now fully integrated in the machine conveyor design on the blow side. The conveyor ladder is designed to make it easier and safer to service mold halves, blow head mechanisms,, blow head arms, bottom plates, takeout tongs, and takeout head mechanisms by providing a robust ladder with an insulated tunnel and footstep Access to the blow side of the machine is simplified and accessory exchange is more ergonomic and safe.
