About

Machinery Safety 101 is a blog and pod­cast for engin­eers and safety prac­ti­tion­ers involved in the design and use of indus­tri­al machinery and the pro­tec­tion of the people that use the equip­ment. The pod­cast and blog is pro­duced by Doug and Kimberly Nix, own­ers and pro­du­cers at Compliance InSight Consulting Inc.

Our pod­cast blog star­ted back in the fall of 2006, with the first epis­ode pub­lished on Sept. 11, 2006 (go to our Episode Archive). It began as an exper­i­ment into social media, as a way to try to reach a broad­er audi­ence look­ing for machinery safety inform­a­tion and hav­ing a hard time find­ing it. Our per­spect­ive comes from more than 30 years of industry exper­i­ence, and more than 20 years of ded­ic­ated machinery safety work. We want to help bridge the know­ledge gap that exists in the industry, and by doing that, help to make sure that people can work safely every day.

We wel­come feed­back from our listen­ers and our read­ers, so please, com­ment! If you have tech­nic­al ques­tions, feel free to post them or con­tact us and we will be happy to get in touch with you! Note that our par­ent com­pany, Compliance inSight Consulting Inc., offers 60 minutes of FREE CONSULTING to new cli­ents if you have some ques­tions that need answers right away.
