“Advancements in Wireless Ethernet,” sponsored by Phoenix Contact will air on Thursday, Oct. 12 at 1 p.m. CDT. Senior editor Jack Smith and a panel of industry experts will discuss the advantages and challenges of applying wireless networking to your plant. The topic was covered in-depth in the July issue of PLANT ENGINEERING magazine. Readers can go to www.plantengineering.com to review all the recent knowledge about wireless posted at the Engineer’s Resource Guide (ERG) and register for the upcoming Webcast.

Safe manufacturers reduce worker’s compensation costs, improve productivity, maintain employee morale and act as a responsible employer. For those who don’t, the numbers are numbing: On-the-job injuries cost American companies $512 billion each year.
