Rockford Systems, LLC., a premier provider of machine safeguarding products and services, today announced details for the next webinar in its online educational series: Machine Safety Compliance 101.
This free, interactive webinar takes an in-depth look at the major challenges facing managers today as they strive to better understand OSHA, ANSI and NFPA standards as they apply to metal working machinery, along with the steps involved in assessing and safeguarding potentially hazardous machinery to full compliance.
"Our in-house research shows that less than half of metal working machinery in operation today is in compliance with OSHA and ANSI standards," said Carrie Halle, Vice President of Marketing for Rockford Systems, LLC. "Many times, this is due to a basic lack of understanding of standards and technology, which is what this important new webinar directly addresses."
The Machine Safety Compliance 101 webinar is scheduled for Thursday, April 6, 2017, from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM CST. It will be led by Roger Harrison, Director of Training for Rockford Systems. Mr. Harrison is an industrial safeguarding expert and author with extensive training experience. Participants will be able to pose their questions live to Mr. Harrison while the webinars are still in progress.
Managers interested in gaining first-hand expertise on improving compliance with metal working machinery standards, reducing insurance costs, and preventing employee injuries can register at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3581793646741614849?source=Media

Specifically, the free webinar will tackle how to safeguard machines to meet or exceed OSHA 29 CFR regulations, ANSI B-11 and NFPA 79 safety standards. ANSI B-11.1 (Safety Requirements for Mechanical Power Presses) will be the primary topic.
