Machine Risk Assessments will be the focus of Rockford Systems, LLC, at the Risk Management Society (RIMS) 2017 Conference, scheduled for April 23-26 in Philadelphia's Pennsylvania Convention Center.

"Machine Risk Assessments are among the most critical operations a manufacturer can undertake to ensure the health and safety of personnel, as well as to achieve improved productivity and profitability," said Carrie Halle, Vice President of Marketing for Rockford Systems, LLC. "Machine Risk Assessments create a safer work environment, while helping make companies more competitive in the marketplace."

Machine risk assessments & code compliance

Rockford Systems staff will be on hand in RIMS booth #2605 to explain how machine risk assessments will help meet today's challenging code requirements that are reaffirmed, rewritten or withdrawn on a continual basis.

Rockford Systems' Machine Risk Assessments are based on ANSI B11.0-2015 (Safety of Machinery - General Requirements and Risk Assessment), the industry standard for machine safeguarding. The team has a thorough understanding of the ANSI risk assessment and risk reduction process, as well as practical know-how into implementing machine safeguarding programs and what additional services may be necessary to support such a project.

Machine risk assessment demonstrations
As part of its Machine Risk Assessment exhibit for RIMS, Rockford Systems will demonstrate a variety of code compliant machinery typically found on the plant floor including a fully operating drill press, mill drill and lathe. Also on display will be demonstrations of perimeter guards, light curtains and laser scanners.

OSHA scale giveaway

RIMS attendees who stop by the Rockford Systems booth to discuss the powerful advantages of a Machine Risk Assessment will receive a free OSHA Guard Opening Scale with a retail value of $30 (USD).
