TOP TIP #11

USE APPROPRIATE EQUIPMENT WHEN HANDLING HOT MELTS


Handling hot melts can be a cause of burns incidents in factories, so it's important to make sure you've got the correct PPE and use appropriate equipments when handling the glue.

 

Make sure that whenever operators refill the tank, they have access to heat protective gloves, a face shield, a storage bin for the adhesive with a lid, and a plastic scoop.

 

Also, make sure that the scoop you are using is the right size for the glue tank you have, as using the wrong size can cause excess spillage. Give us a follow on Linkedin for more top tips!
