In an increasingly competitive world, production facilities must adapt quickly to new demands. This can mean setting up additional facilities in different countries, installing new machines or modifying existing production equipment. Corporations and their safety engineers are responsible for overseeing this ever changing landscape of safety regulations for new, outdated and modified machinery at the local and global levels.
