Out of harm's way
Occupational Health & Safety; page 121: Aug 1999
By Tom Hardcastle

In an article printed in an industrial safety magazine, Tom Hardcastle, Production Supervisor for the LDS Church's Cannery in Murray Utah addresses safety concerns about church owned canneries and bishops storehouses. He talks about the amount of volunteer labor that the church uses in such facilities and the risk that untrained people pose being around machinery that they are not familiar with.

To address that issue, Hardcastle notes that church cannery officials are switching as fast as they can to using production line drive systems that have no external belts, pulleys, chains or gears. These kinds of systems cost more initially, but take much less maintenance and pose such less injury risk for everybody.
