Tecma helps prepare students for a career on the factory floor by sharing real-world information on industrial security in Mexico with them.

The Tecma Group of Companies is comprised of a group of individuals that are educated and trained in all disciplines related to the conduct of successful manufacturing operations in Mexico. One of the areas that are of critical importance in achieving such success is that of the maintenance of industrial security in Mexico. Recently, Tecma shared its knowledge in the community in the form of a presentation that was made at the Technological University of Ciudad Juarez (UTCJ). Tecma’s corporate director of energy, industrial security and environmental regulation compliance, Jorge Zamarripa, shared a presentation with the students in attendance that was entitled, “How to Diagnose and Implement Security Measures in the Workplace.” Zamarripa was assisted by Tecma’s specialist in industrial security,  Juan Francisco Balanzar Sanchez, who also happens to be a student of renewable energy engineering at the UTCJ.

The central focus of Zamarripa and Balanzar Sanchez’s presentation was an examination of the central security industrial security measures required in Mexico under its system of “NOMs,” or Normas Oficiales Mexicanas. Although the concentration of the information presented was that of industrial security in the context of industrial security in Mexico, both speakers emphasized that the principles that were under discussion are of the sort that can be applicable to the manufacturing workplace in facilities in factories worldwide.

According to Zamarripa, “Security rules and regulations in the United States and Mexico are essentially very similar, for instance. Although some of the details of implementation may differ from country to country and from place to place, the underlying principles are essentially the same.” Zamarripa added that “it is important to remember that the overriding purpose of taking the appropriate measures to ensure industrial security in Mexico, as well as in facilities all over, is to protect workers and the physical integrity of the workplace, as well as to ensure the safe transport of hazardous waste from facilities that are the product of industrial operations.”

Jorge Salazar Sanchez, a veteran of ten years in the field of industrial security in Mexico, emphasized the need to be “constantly analyzing the conditions of the workplace in order to identify industrial risk potential before it manifests itself in accidents and other mishaps.” He added that, “by doing this and by keeping apprised of innovations that occur in the realm of developments of technologies and measures that can be taken to increase and enhance industrial security in Mexico many potentially serious problems can be minimized, or avoided entirely.”

Both speakers commented on the importance of remembering that issues related to industrial security in Mexico may have important and serious legal implications. Because of this important consideration, companies must be conscientious in their education and training of personnel that are adequately equipped to oversee such an important area of  Mexican manufacturing operations, as well as to be able to promote the safety of the employees that make each company successful in their production efforts.

At the end of the presentation on the topic of industrial security in Mexico, the rector of the Technological University of Ciudad Juarez thanked Tecma Group experts Jorge Zamarripa an Francisco Balanzar Sanchez for contributing their valuable time to contribute to the education of the students in attendance.
