    Over the course of June – National Safety Month – the National Safety Council raised awareness of the most common causes of injury and death in the workplace and helped companies develop effective strategies to ensure the safety and health of their workers. As a proud supporter of National Safety Month, we wanted to take a moment to further that mission by sharing some of our safety solutions with our customers.

    How Can You Improve Workplace Safety?

    Workplace safety should be a leading priority for any company, but it doesn’t need to be a challenge. Taking these simple steps can help you keep your workplace is as safe as possible at all times.

    1. Follow OSHA Guidelines 

    The Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration (OSHA) was founded to protect American workers from harmful conditions by establishing safety standards for every major industry and educating businesses on the best practices for their workplaces. Regardless of your field, be sure to acquaint yourself with any relevant OSHA regulations and follow them as closely as possible.

    2. Post Signs, Labels, and Warnings throughout the Workplace

    Workplace accidents are usually the product of carelessness or ignorance rather than deliberately unsafe behavior. Outlining the precautions that employees need to take before entering a certain space or handling a particular piece of equipment can significantly reduce the risk of injury or death on the job.

    3. Employee Training and Certification Programs

    At the end of the day, the best safeguard against occupational hazards is a well-informed staff. All employees should receive thorough instruction in any tasks or processes in which they’re involved, and any functions that could endanger the entire workplace if performed improperly should be limited to employees with special certifications.

    Mobile Safety Products to Add to Your Worksite

    While these common sense measures can improve safety throughout the workplace, recent technological innovations can prove an invaluable addition to your company’s safety procedures. At Central Diesel, we’re pleased to produce a number of mobile safety products that can further strengthen your efforts to protect your employees.

    Our mobile safety solutions are designed to shore up your safety strategies wherever necessary. Our Mobile Surveillance System, for example, constantly monitors any space that requires heightened visibility, helping you ward off intruders or unauthorized employees. Similarly, our Mobile Lighting Systems can increase visibility in any environment in which light is limited, eliminating a common cause of workplace accidents.

    Following National Safety Month, it’s an ideal time to review and modify your safety strategies as necessary. Take the time to thoroughly assess your operations and speak with employees to identify possible risks and develop effective solutions to them. From conducting necessary trainings to investing in appropriate safety equipment, don’t hesitate to make needed changes.

    At Central Diesel, we’re committed improving American companies with cost-effective safety products that provide lasting protection from any occupational hazard. If you’d like to explore our offerings, contact us today.

  2. Why You Should Choose Diesel Engines

    At Central Diesel, we are in the business of supplying both diesel engines and the components of diesel engines. A diesel engine is a type of internal combustion engine where heat produced by the compression of air in the cylinder is used to ignite the diesel fuel. There are many benefits to using diesel engines over other internal combustion engines such as gasoline fueled engines.

    Efficiency and Fuel Economy

    One of the main advantages of diesel engines is the efficiency and fuel economy it offers. Diesel engines burn less fuel than gasoline or petrol engine when performing the same work. This means that with equal amounts of both diesel and gasoline, you would be able to travel a further distance when using the diesel fuel. Diesel fuel allows for a greater distance traveled for a much cheaper price.

    Safety

    Safety is another great advantage of diesel engines. They are considered to be safer than gasoline engines as diesel fuel itself is less volatile, and its vapor is less explosive than gasoline. Diesel fuel also does not release fumes like gasoline does, as it produces minimal carbon monoxide compared to gasoline. New methods to produce cleaner diesel have recently been discovered by scientists and is projected to be used in cars in the next 5-10 years. This new method will help to emit less carbon dioxide into the environment.

    Durability

    Diesel engines also tend to be longer lasting than other types of engines. This can be due to the use of stronger parts than in gas engine components as diesel engines are generally used to move heavier vehicles and machines. Diesel fuel also has excellent lubricating properties which contributes to better reliability and durability.
