Why Manufacturers Should Prioritize Workplace Safety and Security

POSTED: 23rd May

Manufacturing remains the backbone of global economies. A facility's safety and security are not just about protection; they directly influence optimal productivity. Every disruption or threat, whether physical or digital, affects processes, personnel and equipment.

Physical intrusions can disrupt production lines and result in theft or damage. Cyberattacks compromise data and proprietary information, leading to potential losses and reputational damage. Unauthorized access, even if unintentional, can leak confidential designs or processes.

For manufacturers, the starting line in their defense strategy is understanding these threats and being proactive about mitigation. A proactive approach to plant safety and security helps prevent potential breaches, saving organizations money on damage control in the long run.
