Machinery Safety 101

Manufacturing Automation Round Table

On Septem­ber 21st, I par­ti­cip­ated in a round table dis­cus­sion sponsored by Man­u­fac­tur­ing Auto­ma­tion magazine.

We covered a lot of ground in the dis­cus­sions, touch­ing on har­mon­iz­a­tion of machinery safety stand­ards, applic­a­tion of OHS laws and the abil­ity of man­u­fac­tur­ers and employ­ers to com­ply with require­ments, and a lot more.

We had some great people around the table for these con­ver­sa­tions. At the table were:

Wayne De L’Orme – Ontario Min­istry of Labour;

Eliza­beth Rankin – CSA Standards;

Dave Lawson – Advanced Motion & Controls;

Jeff Math­yssen – Electro-Mag;

Rick Sauer – Festo; Dan Fourni­er – Omron;

Lisa Bolton – Sher­rard Kuzz LLP; and


The round table will be the fea­ture story in the Novem­ber / Decem­ber issue of Man­u­fac­tur­ing Auto­ma­tion, and a video of the dis­cus­sions will be avail­able on their web­site.
