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

myself.

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.
