Dear Rajkumar,
I would appreciate if you prepare some presentation and ask for suggestions from seniors.
Spoon feeding would not help you.
Dear Raghu,
Thanks for your updates on this thread.
If Mr. Rajkumar comes with a specific query I shall definately help.
But it is expected that the ground work is done by the member before seeking the help.
Thanks & Regards,

Dear my Rajkumar,

Good that you asked for guidance. I really appreciate it. It shows that you intent to act. You probe for giving your best in your endeavor. I consider it my duty to extent possible help to youngsters. It is a positive thought.

On the other hand if you just want to copy something making it easy for you and never intent to exert yourselves; it is not a positive sign and you cannot succeed as a professional safety man. I really do not like to help such ones.

Now coming to the main issue: You need to make a safety manual for foundry.

Founding industry is a hazardous activity. However you can make it the safest one. In order to draw a safety manual one has to know the type of foundry, and their activities.

The activities like melting, handling etc in a steel foundry is entirely different from a non-ferrous foundry like aluminum, magnesium, or copper/brass and as such the hazards also vary.

So specify as to what foundry you have, what are the types of furnaces used, on various sections like sand and raw materials storage and handling, pattern making, core making, molding, melting, curing, fettling, cranes, radiography (Gamma ray), lab facilities health care and so on.

Unlike steel or aluminum foundry magnesium foundry is having serious health problems also.

Post all the details possible, let us see. You surely will get necessary help and make the manual.

Hi Rajkumar,
I use to manage the safety function for a foundry and suggest you start by examining the presentations below, which have two excellent safety presentations
“foundry safety” on SlideShare
Apart from these you will need to examine your local legislative obligations, checklists, etc to proactively manage the risks
