In Europe, the food industry referring to a series of industrial activities directed at the production, distribution, processing, conversion, preparation, preservation, transport, certification and packaging, is one of the largest and most important manufacturing sectors.
Each year, 2,500 U.S workers are injured and more than 700 U.S. are killed in machine-related accidents. Reasons for these accidents include that when proper precautions (e.g in regards to shutting down the equipment during maintenance ) are not taken, workers face increased risk of burns and electrocution. Another reason is because of loud noises that prevent proper communication between the employees at the workplace.
