Safety integration webcast: Changing regulations, efficiency, productivity

When safety is designed in and integrated into machine design or a plant floor manufacturing cell, it incorporates operator diagnostics, regulatory requirements, and productivity concerns.

Safety can be applied two main Sam Boytor, president, Fox Controls Inc., is involved in international standards formation (including ANSI B11.TR6 on controls and safety circuits), and teaches seminars and classes on U.S. and International Machine Safeguarding, with a ways. A separate hard-wired, bolted on, after-the-fact machine safety structure is more traditional, and often seen by operators and management as an impediment to productivity, and, possibly, something to circumvent when hurried. When safety is designed in and integrated into machine design or a plant floor manufacturing cell, it incorporates operator diagnostics, regulatory requirements, and productivity concerns.

Integrated safety helps ensure that safe operations do not slow throughput or becomes something to thwart to meet and exceed production goals. Safety integration also brings opportunities for gaining competitive advantage, offering greater efficiency without extra maintenance and capital costs of dedicated safety equipment and related point-to-point wiring. The speakers will give examples of where we are and where we could be with machine safety and risk assessment with OSHA and international regulations and standards.

Safety integration webcast, Control EngineeringSafety Integration Webcast broadcast on Thursday, April 14, 2011, is now available, archived, on demand.

Those listening live can participate in a question and answer session. Those listening to the archive version can submit questions at http://www.controleng.com/blogs/machine-safety.html.

The event is free and one learning unit will be provided upon successful completion of exam following the Webcast. Take the exam by clicking on this link.
