Ross Controls

(TROY, MI) –ROSS CONTROLS is proud to introduce its new spring schedule for Total Machine Safety™, a seminar designed to educate maintenance supervisors, safety engineers, safety managers, engineering managers and skilled maintenance technicians on how to improve productivity and reduce risks in the workplace.  ROSS continues its long-standing dedication to customer education and safety training with this innovative and fully integrated electrical and fluid power machine safeguarding training program.  For 2011, the Total Machine Safety™ curriculum has been updated to include hydraulic safety methods in addition to the electrical and pneumatic safety methods addressed in previous seminars.

ROSS' decades of experience training customers and helping solve their safety issues has demonstrated that a thorough approach to safety control system evaluation and design is the best method for the success of one's safety program. The full day Total Machine Safety™ seminar will address how integrating machine safeguarding early in the machine design process can be beneficial to a company’s bottom line.  Topics to be covered include current safety standards, hazard and risk assessment, safety circuits, lockout/tagout, and pneumatic, hydraulic, and electrical components.

Attendees will receive a comprehensive workbook which contains a compilation of the presentation, a detailed reference material appendix and a glossary.  Besides the valuable presentation materials, the seminar fee includes a continental breakfast and lunch.
