Are You Up To Date On New Safety Regulations and Cost Saving Technologies?

09/19/2007


Global regulations and the technology which support them continue to change rapidly. To help bring you up to date on many of these issues, the following four critical topics will be covered.

  • Expanding the Safety Zone with Wireless Ethernet (Sept 20th, 2pm EDT)
    About the Event—Whether you are at home browsing the web, in the office sending emails or in the manufacturing facility communicating to devices, Ethernet has become the backbone of the way we communicate electronically. New advancements in this technology have enabled wireless networks to be used not only in the home and office but also in the implementation of control architectures, which greatly reduces wiring and installation costs. Expanding this to the safety layer, now opens up new and innovative solutions to age old problems. Topics include:
    - Ethernet Technologies
    - Advancements in Wireless Ethernet Technologies
    - Machine Safety on Ethernet
    - Wireless Ethernet featuring PROFISafe
    - Wireless Mobile Panel with Safety Integrated
    - One system does it all: Automation and Safety
    - Case study

  • Arc Flash Hazard: Understanding Safe Electrical Work Practices, Standards and Regulations (Nov 15th, 2pm EDT)
    About the Event - The Arc Flash safety webinar focuses on NFPA 70E Electrical Safety Requirements, Arc Flash Boundaries (AFB) and personal protective equipment (PPE) categories. Participants should be able to better understand Employer/Employee Responsibilities, Overview of NFPA 70E, OSHA, ANSI and IEEE1584 Standards as well as learn how OSHA is involved. Topics include:
    - Employee safety
    - NFPA 70E compliance
    - OSHA requirements
    - IEEE 1584 hazard analysis
    - Safe workplace practices

  • Will you be ready when OSHA comes knocking? (recorded and ready to view)
    About the Event—Are you up-to-date on the latest changes in safety standards? Do you know which standards apply to your situation—and how standards are enforced by OSHA?
    If not, you're in good company. More than 72% of the controls engineers responding to a 2006 Control Engineering survey were not aware of all of the recent and dramatic changes in safety standards. Unfortunately, ignorance is no defense when OSHA comes knocking.
    During this webinar you'll learn valuable information that will:
    - Simplify the safety standards' landscape (NFPA, ANSI, ISO, etc.)
    - Identify key elements to standards compliance
    - Enable you to reduce risks and increase employee protection
    - Help you comply with OSHA regulations
    Don't miss this opportunity to get the must-know information you need to understand, implement, and comply with current safety standards and regulations. You'll come away with information that will benefit you immediately.
