In an increasingly competitive environment where "lean” manufacturing is requiring operators to multi-task and rotate jobs we explore how companies can avoid the need to compromise on safety whilst enabling operators to be better protected, more productive and more compliant. All of which will enhance your competitive advantage. We will demonstrate the benefits of lightweight advanced protection compared to more traditional solutions.
