About Machinery Safety 101

Machin­ery Safe­ty 101 is a blog and pod­cast about machin­ery safe­ty tech­niques, stan­dards and reg­u­la­tions. The blog is writ­ten 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 are 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.
