Introduction to Beverage Manufacturing Safety

The beverage industry consists of soft drink syrup manufacturing; soft drink and water bottling and canning; fruit juice bottling, canning, and boxing; and the distillation and brewing of alcoholic beverages. Major industry hazards can arise from how these materials are created, stored, and stacked, including:

  • Chemical exposure during filling and bottling;
  • Objects falling from overhead containers;
  • Asphyxiation in confined spaces; and
  • Carbon dioxide gas exposure.

To ensure employee safety, employers should recognize the conditions under which these hazards are created and maintained, and should take steps to minimize the risk of injury posed by these hazards.
