Rockwell newlogo 400Protecting human safety is a huge undertaking when it comes to operating a mine. With regulations in place, safeguards on machinery and in-depth training, we put a major emphasis on keeping workers safe, but is it enough? Is there more than can be done?

 

 

 

The explosion in craft beer popularity had one company – Sleeman Breweries – bursting at its production seams. The third-largest brewer in Canada, Sleeman brews and distributes popular beers from lagers to pale ales.

 

 

 

Safe Distance in Machine Design When machine safeguarding is used one of the most relevant (and least discussed) effective measures is safe placement of the equipment in relation to the hazard. This is especially true when trying to comply with the requirements to eliminate trapped energy under ISO 13849-1 where exhaust time and volume of compressed air in the machine play a role in creating a safe condition. Considerations must include those questions posed in a risk assessment such as severity of injury, frequency of exposure and so we begin to look at all aspects of the machine design.

 

 

 

Circular Connectors 400The metric system of units was introduced for the first time in 1793 during the French Revolution and is used even today in almost all countries worldwide. The metric round plug connectors are also based on this system of units and are a known standard in raw industrial applications.
