In today’s times companies have started using UAV’s to keep a real time check on safety procedures. The monetary objective is...it reduces the workers compensation by almost one third. The long term objective is improvement in workers morale resulting in better productivity and overall creating a safe environment.

A safety officer investigates incidents to prevent recurrence and ensures continuity of production. At times piping accidents have happened because the workers had inadequate knowledge about safety procedures and equipment’s. Safety gears can be divided in two categories the first being used by the worker himself like protective suits, helmets, glasses, safety shoes, appropriate hand gloves, gas masks and the second category being safety devices used on the work equipment like machine guards, Alarms, fire extinguishers and Flange guards. 

A safety officer should be well versed with these products So that workers can be educated and trained on field for the upcoming challenges. Industrial environment is always challenging because of large number of equipment’s and manpower working in sync to ensure continuity of production. Any miss could be catastrophic and will lead to injury, death or damage of the industrial equipment.

We have seen with our experience that a major number of accidents have been avoided by the use of flange or valve guards. These safety shields ensure safety of your workers by containing any hazardous fluid spillage on the manpower and equipment. So when your coworker is working near pipelines, the fear of an accident because of hazardous fluid spillage will never be in the back of his mind. This ensures faster resolution of downtime and increases productivity.

Properties of HSFG Bolts

Bolts are extensively used as a fastener. They serve various purposes and there may be various types of bolts. We at Indiana Steel being in the steel business since long and are involved in the manufacture and supply of various kinds of fasteners includes bolts. Of the various types of bolts which are in use the HSFG bolts are widely used. These are on account of the properties they have. In this blog we will explain to you what they are and their properties and benefits of using them. HSFG bolts what they are? How they are made?High Strength Friction Grip Bolts are popularly known are HSFG bolts. They are made from bars of medium carbon steel. These bolts have great strength. Their high strength is built through the process of quenching and tempering. 
This process is also known as alloying steel. Steel washers of hard steel or carburized steel are provided to evenly distribute the clamping pressure on the bolted member and to prevent the threaded portion of the bolt from bearing on th…
