The introduction of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies, also known as 3D printing, has the potential to transform modern industrial production, but it also brings new considerations for manufacturers and their employees.  These considerations include potential safety risks and various hazards associated with the Material, Equipment and Facility where parts are manufactured. Further, AM capabilities can be particularly complex when introduced in existing production facilities with established safety management practices.

This webinar will review the seven distinct technologies in AM, common materials and applications and associated risks. Highlighting industry best practices for material handling and storage, equipment safety and PPE, the webinar will address basic considerations for setting up a safe functioning facility while considering the key risks and hazards associated with AM technology.
