April, 2006

This spring, Talan Products was recognized by the Precision Metalforming Association for a continuation of a quality safety standard within the metal-working industry.

Talan Products, is an industry leading high volume metal stamper located in Cleveland, Ohio.

In addition to stamping metal parts, Talan Products produces finished, fabricated components from metal tube as well as finished cut-to-length and fabricated aluminum extrusion.

For the sixth consecutive year (2005), Talan Products was recognized by PMA’s Safety and Environment committee on “achieving zero incidents involving days away from work, days of restricted work activity or job transfer.”

With the United States, accidents involving workers in plants employing metal forming and metal working (including the Talan Products’ area of expertise – metal stamping), along with transportation equipment manufacturing and food manufacturing accounted for 42 percent of all injury and illness cases reported as by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) for 2004.

The Precision Metalforming Association has aligned itself with the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) to promote worker safety and health in the metalforming industry. PMA and OSHA work together to reduce exposure to ergonomic hazards and address press-safety issues such as machine guarding and lockout/tagout to prevent injuries.

Meegan Moore, Talan Products director of Human Services, proudly noted that on January 19, 2006 Talan reached 2,100 consecutive days with zero lost-time accidents, a figure monitored by the Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation.
