Which in turns affects the company’s management and decision-makers:

Inability to meet production and customer timelines
Monetary losses from legal fees and compensations

Loss of future opportunities


Companies Can Potentially Be Affected

It is common to find hundreds of production workers operating on hundreds of CNC machines in a plant. The risks of a such a human-safety accident occuring during operations of the CNC machines, could therefore be higher.

A single accident can lead to major consequences for any company such as:

Production stoppages
Legal issues
Re-hiring of workers
Legal compensation
Psychological impact on other workers
