How Hazardous Is the Printing Industry?

The post about OSHA fines hanging over a Pennsylvania printer drew some sharp comments about safety practices in the printing industry. One question was especially provocative: is the recession-battered printing industry skimping on safety by paying less attention than it once did to protecting life and limb on the job? The data we do have indicate that while it’s still quite possible to get hurt or even killed in a printing plant, print firms offer workers a safer environment than private-sector industry as a whole. What’s more, the numbers on safety in printing and related services have been improving steadily for years.

Online comments are alike in finding more fault with OSHA than with the printer. Readers also bemoan the loss of U.S. business to China in the same breath as they lambast excessive regulation in this country.

RRD's Strategic Inkjet Direction

I find it fascinating that RRD (1) has invested mega capital and resources to develop a proprietary inkjet engine in an arena where the deepest technology pockets in the world (HP, OCE, Xerox, Screen, et al) have been coming out with new and upgraded inkjet engines annually for years and (2) yet they are driving their machine with off the shelf software, GMC.

Virtual Press Clips: Print Firms in the News

Local Paper Prints Story That Gets Print Right

Unless they burn to the ground, mangle a worker in a press, or employ someone who gets busted for embezzlement, printing companies don’t attract much attention in the mainstream media. It’s rare that hometown newspapers portray them simply for what they are—local businesses striving to protect jobs and profits from all of the forces that seem to be conspiring against jobs and profits in the printing industry these days. A praiseworthy exception is this profile of Missouri printer Kelly Press in the Columbia Daily Tribune.
