Keeping workers safe and keeping the production line going may seem contradictory, but in most cases, safety solutions increase productivity and machine availability. Implementing risk mitigation techniques without following the right process, however, can have a detrimental effect on productivity. On March 9th & 10th, 2021, the Machine Safety Forum will bring together Functional Safety Experts, standards experts, and solutions providers to provide information and guidance on safety processes and best practices.

Featured Presentations

Presentations and discussions will focus on risk assessments, ANSI B11 standards (special guest) and the machine safety lifecycle. Presentations will include:

  •    -   Machine Safety Lifecycle
  •    -   ANSI B11 Machinery Safety Standards and Their Importance – presented by David Felinski, ANSI B11 Committee President
  •    -   Selling Machinery to Europe, Law and Directives
  •    -   A guide to choosing the right safety software
