Who should attend:
The seminars are an ideal setting for Health & Safety, Human Resources, Operations, Manufacturing, Engineering and Insurance, Risk Management personnel to learn how to better interpret and apply the performance language of both the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 29 CFR regulations and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) B-11 series machine safety standards. In doing so, they will learn to keep their companies in absolute compliance, reduce insurance costs, and help prevent employee accidents on metal working machinery, such as power presses and press brakes.
The seminars are led by ROGER HARRISON, an industrial safeguarding expert with over 25,000 hours of training experience. Mr. Harrison is also a speaker at seminars sponsored by the Precision MetalForming Association (PMA), National Safety Council (NSC), FABTECH and many more. Through his teaching methods participants will learn to interpret the OSHA 29 CFR and ANSI B-11 standards as they relate to specific machine applications and production requirements.
