Understanding Health and Safety in Additive Manufacturing

Thanks to the inherent design freedom and ease of fabrication it possesses, Additive Manufacturing (or 3D Printing as it is more commonly known) has the potential to disrupt conventional manufacturing.

In this webinar, we will look at various safety nets needed during the life cycle of powder-based AM Facilities and how to comply with the applicable requirements. We will also address concerns from an owner’s perspective during the design-build-upkeep cycle of a facility. The webinar will focus on identification of different hazards found in a typical facility, including hazard analysis.

Watch the webinar to ensure that your additive manufacturing facility meets the applicable safety codes and standards.
