Milos Structural Systems talks safety at Guangzhou workshop
CHINA: Milos Structural Systems recently conducted a two-day workshop at its factory in Guangzhou, China for a select group of its customers from Indonesia, India, Singapore and China.
During the meeting, Milos discussed its factory, products and manufacturing processes, whilst educational sections of the workshop served to inform attendees about using and working safely with Milos products.
On the first day, Milos provided a detailed overview of the company, brand strategy and growth in 2013, which was followed by a presentation of rigging and associated hardware.
Following this, attendees were shown around the factory, where Milos sales and technical representatives showed participants the company’s welding processes and techniques, materials for making products, and the machinery used during manufacturing.
Attendees also viewed the brand’s parts stock and precision-manufacturing techniques carried out for all Milos Structural Systems products. The first day ended with a presentation on lifting principles and how trusses work.
The second day was focused on risk assessment and mitigation. The first part of the workshop revolved around the topic: ‘What goes wrong and why?’ when working with support structures, and provided some examples of what happens when things go wrong. This was followed by a presentation about safety factors and logic, and then information about working safely at heights.
At the end of the two-day workshop, participants were taken out to the factory’s expo area where they viewed a fully constructed Milos roof, after which chains, towers and bridle load analyses were discussed. Each participant was given a certificate of completion.
