Omron STI publishes guide to Machine and Process Safety Services
Reviewed 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.
The Guide compares and contrasts various assessment and risk identification solutions including compliance identification assessments, compliance assessments with generalized recommendations, risk reduction assessments identifying a possible solution, and comprehensive machine and process safeguarding assessments with risk reduction solutions.
Manufacturers can also review a number of engineering, integration and implementation services, including 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.
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.
