Keeping your distance:
How to set safety distances and ensure the separation of personnel from machinery hazards.

In this last part of our “Questioning Machinery Safety Integrity” webinar series, we address the issue of separation of personnel from machinery hazards. Specifically, we will be looking at the positioning of a correctly designed protective measure from the hazard.

When a risk assessment is performed, we rapidly identify the effect of contact with the hazardous motion or energy. But all too often the location of the installed protective measures fail to take into account the users and their tasks in relation to the position of that hazard.

Questioning machine safety integrity:
safe guarding and interlocking techniques.

In this session, we look at the application of safety devices on machinery. We link together the pros and cons of different safety devices, and their compliance to the relevant standards.

We will talk about the application of guarding methods in relation to what has been found in a risk assessment. There is little point in guarding the machine if it doesn’t reduce the hazards to an acceptable level.

We will cover guarding, presence sensing plus other means of interlocking the active protective measures into the control system. We will discuss the selection path of protective measures and how that relates to risk assessment. Finally, we will address the safety measure to ensure approach speeds are taken into account.

QUESTIONING MACHINE SAFETY INTEGRITY

Making a machine safe is really easy. Anyone can do it.
But can they do it right? How do you know?

In this webinar we will not drown you with lessons on standards and Directives.
We will however, take you through a lifecycle which, without exception, is the only path to having a safe machine.
Each step will be explained for its importance to the process of attaining safe work equipment. These steps build in to the understanding of what is necessary.

In later webinars, we will dive deeper into the “ how to” side of making machines safe to use, starting with an introduction to safety related controls and performance levels.

So join us on for step 1 in the journey to machine safety.
