This session is co-presented by North High Brewing and Safex Inc. Started in 2011, North High Brewing recently expanded its brewery, making it one of the largest craft breweries in Columbus, Ohio. The beer industry is generally regarded as safe. However, there are numerous regulations that apply in breweries. Complying with confined space, lockout/tagout and hazard communication regulations can keep brewers safer. Learn about how safety assessments keep brewery workers safer on the job and compliant with regulations.
