Standards: Ind., OSHA, ANSI

Standards for the safe manufacturing, installation, and operation of compactors are governed by the ANSI Z245.2 industry standards. These guidelines are developed by the industry and it is the responsibility of each manufacturer to interpret and enact these standards. SP Industries is proud to be a part of this process by providing leadership of this group. Denny Pool, our president has served as the chairman of the compactor committee since 2002. Our commitment to quality, safety, and value are traditions that we hold dear.

Also, we recommend that you be familiar with current OSHA guidelines for safe machinery operation. You can learn more about OSHA by visiting their website at: www.osha.gov . Your local community, state, or other governing body may also have regulations pertaining to operation of this machinery. It is important that you review the safety information that comes with your machinery and with your safety supervisors at your company.
