Workplace Operations Requiring Safety

The operations performed through workers in their workplace are of dissimilar nature but they involve a number of machine, equipment and material. The safety precautions are adopted for machines and operations carried out on them. Several operations need hazardous material or material in hazardous state. Here some operation that are either machine /equipment and material specific are described which would require safety practices to be involved. No attempt will be made to describe the safety process to be adopted.
