Rockford Systems Announces 2018 Seminar Schedule for Industrial Machine Safeguarding

Lock in 2017 pricing by registering before January 1st.

As a leading authority on machine safeguarding, Rockford Systems, LLC returns in 2018 with a comprehensive seminar schedule for professionals in the EH&S, plant management, insurance and metal fabrication industries. From understanding how to properly safeguard machinery for meeting OSHA/ANSI standards, to a discussion on how to incorporate ergonomics into safeguarding methods, the educational seminars will give attendees practical, actionable ideas to take with them and put to use in their own operations.

Renown throughout the industry, Rockford Systems’ 2.5 day machine safeguarding seminars have been attended by thousands of professionals from aerospace, automotive, agriculture, consulting, government, insurance, manufacturing, metal fabrication, oil and gas, and many other sectors. Primary focus is on interpretation of performance language found in both OSHA 29 CRF (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and ANSI B-11 (American National Standards Institute) standards, with specific safeguarding situations discussed such as basic risk reduction guidelines for metalworking machines as they relate to production requirements. Leaving the classroom for the plant floor, attendees will also witness a series of 15 safety demonstrations on lathes, power presses and press brakes so they can see firsthand how different guards and devices can be applied to prevent injuries and save lives.

Seminars are led by Rockford Systems Director of Training Roger Harrison, an industrial safeguarding expert with over 25,000 hours of training experience. Roger is a regular speaker at training seminars sponsored by the Precision MetalForming Association (PMA) and FABTECH. Seminars are held at Rockford Systems headquarters in Rockford, Illinois.
