equipment operators (referred to in this standard as authorized persons), and equipment owners aimed at reducing the risk of injury to personnel during the operation of three-roll printing ink mills. The information contained in this document is intended to be used in conjunction with the development, implementation and maintenance of process specific/in-house safe operating procedures, safety training, inspection and maintenance programs and other accepted means of minimizing hazards associated with the operation of three-roll printing ink mills.
