Considering newer products and technologies can improve personnel safety, especially when combined with a “design for safety” approach and appropriate automation.

2. Removing IT/OT barriers to ensure plant floor safety, operational integrity

Securing industrial control systems (ICS) differs from protecting enterprise networking and information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) teams must work toward alignment as cybersecurity threats rise.

3. Leading edge machine safety controls solutions

Modern machine safety controls solutions are critical for industrial manufacturing companies to maximize production capability while making equipment safe for workers to operate and improving employee morale.

4. Integrated and distributed safety for motion control

Safety requires an integrated and distributed approach to keep workers safe from an environment that features autonomous equipment.

5. Weftec Recap: Water safety, efficiency is mission critical

Weftec had manufacturers emphasizing the need to improve efficiency and safety for water treatment, wastewater plants and municipalities.
