Help in addressing safety legislation

Help in addressing safety legislation
Rockwell Automation will be presenting and exhibiting services, software and hardware solutions at Health+Safety 10 to help plant and machinery designers address significant and upcoming safety legislation.

As well as demonstrating numerous brand new and existing examples of its class-leading, scalable, networked safety hardware, the company will also be detailing how it has expanded its safety services; helping its customers carry out audits, risk assessments, circuit analyses and CE Marking.

Paul Davies from Rockwell Automation explains: "As part of our wider safety offering, we are promoting our new safety services as an integral part of the machine safety equation. Forming an intrinsic and vital element of the initial assessment of any safety solution, we can now formally offer our customers in-depth guidance, solutions and training towards addressing their specific safety requirements."

As a Machine Safety Zone Partner, Rockwell Automation will also be giving a presentation, on both days, covering functional safety and how it is set to change the behaviour of users and designers of automation systems. The presentation will also discuss the implementation and demands of ISO 13849-1 and how it has led to growing interest in SISTEMA - a software tool for the evaluation of application safety, especially relating to ISO 13849-1.

Davies elaborates: "SISTEMA is an independent and open application evaluation tool that is used to assess the safety performance of a machine or plant installation. Legislation is driving this evaluation process and by going down an open-tool route we believe we will be able to offer the best possible service to our customers." Behind the software's open front end, Rockwell Automation has made available all of the functional safety data applicable to its hardware; making it incredibly straightforward for users to calculate the safety rating of their installations and address the demands of the legislation.
