Omron STI safety services available in Southeast Asia
April 19, 2009 - The Omron Scientific Technologies, Inc. comprehensive suite of machine and process safety services is now available to manufacturers in Southeast Asia. Safety services are available as a full solution or on an a la carte basis, and include machine and process safety education, assessment and risk identification, engineering and design, as well as integration and implementation.

“While a variety of assessment and risk identification processes exist in the market, Omron STI believes that its machine and process safeguarding assessment and risk reduction solution offers the greatest value because, along with a risk level score, the assessment report provides a prioritized corrective action score for each machine. This allows the user to target funds to the most needed areas,” says John Peabody, Vice President of Major Accounts. “In addition, our report provides detailed corrective action recommendations along with a conceptual drawing of the guarding to allow the user to see what the machine will look like after it is guarded. An Omron STI report also states what the risk level will be after the recommended guarding is implemented."

Available education services include a safety and health training software program, safe distance measurement tools, Skill Builder training and guest speaker programs, and free on-site product and application training.

Manufacturers can also select from a number of engineering and design, and integration and implementation, services to tailor a solution to meet their needs. These programs include turn-key safeguard integration, machine safeguarding evaluation/risk level identification/risk reduction, safety system interface engineering and design, machine or process safety consulting, safety project engineering/design, project management, and annual machine safety check-ups.

“Safety can pay big dividends when properly executed, and manufacturers who partner with Omron STI have peace of mind knowing that their machines or process lines are safeguarded to 100% compliance with current standards. And they are saving money because the machine safety improvements only need to be done once,” says Peabody. “As part of our safety services offering, Omron STI also delivers a fully documented risk level identification and risk reduction strategy, and professionally trains machine operators on the installed safety system to maximize safety and productivity.”

The expertise required in all phases of the safeguarding process is typically not a core competency of most manufacturers. Omron STI employees serve as active members or chairmen on US domestic and international machine safety standards committees. Coupled with 30 years of experience in industrial machine safeguarding, and a breadth and depth of solutions that enables them to offer unbiased safety recommendations, Omron STI knows machine safety and passes that knowledge on to their manufacturing customers.
