Webcast: Connecting safety and productivity

Oct. 14 Webcast will explore new standards and technologies to enable safer, more productive plants

10/11/2010


As a plant engineer, you face significant pressure to keep employees safe, comply with current standards, and continue to increase productivity. Machine design engineers face similar challenges to meet global machine safety standards while improving throughput and reducing costs.

Historically, safety systems have been viewed as counter-productive rather than opportunities to deliver real value or gain a competitive edge. However, contemporary safety technologies, and the functional safety standards that permit their use, can help improve worker and equipment safety while improving productivity and delivering real value to manufacturers and machine builders alike.

In this Webcast, Plant Engineering Editor Bob Vavra and safety specialists from Rockwell Automation will share insight into how to meet the latest safety standards and what they mean to plant operations. They also will provide best practices for taking advantage of new safety technologies to better protect workers and increase plant efficiency and productivity.

  • The importance of safety and sustainability
  • Functional Safety standards
  • Contemporary safety technologies

By applying the practices discussed in this Webcast, attendees will learn how to better protect workers and equipment while improving overall machine and line functionality, efficiency and productivity.

Presenters: – Market Development Manager, Safety
Mike Miller – Certified Functional Safety Expert, Technical Consultant, Safety
