The 2016 Safety Study was conducted by Plant Engineering to better understand workplace safety in manufacturing. The research also looked at the idea of a safety “culture,” how far these efforts extend into the plant and beyond, and safety trends and strategies. Respondents to the Plant Engineering 2016 Safety Study identified seven high-level findings impacting the manufacturing industries today. Sponsored by: ATS.
