Juiced-Up Safety Program for Cider Bottling Facility
July 10, 2009
Who hasn't heard the adage, "An apple a day can keep the doctor away."? Since the Great Depression, cider maker S. Martinelli & Co., Watsonville, Calif., has been urging consumers to "Drink Your Apple a Day" in a refreshing glass of juice.
That same concern for health is apparent in the industrial safety program used at the company’s 450,000 ft2 production plant. A technical note detailing the Martinelli safety program, “Martinelli’s pursues the sweet taste of safety,” and how the company uses safety and other tools from Everett, Wash.-based Fluke is available online. Details about the juice-maker's safety plan, including electrical safety, operator training, chemical and electrical safety and proper use of personal protective equipment, are included in the case history posted on Fluke's application tech notes library.
