Fluid Power Talk

Maintenance safety training available

If you're looking for some good maintenance and safety training and you have some spare time next week, Ross Controls, Troy, Mich., will be holding its Total Machine Safety seminar, in three locations in Ontario and New York. The class covers electrical and fluid power machine safeguarding training and has been updated to include hydraulic safety methods, in addition to the electrical and pneumatic safety methods addressed in previous seminars.

The full day 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.

It is 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.

Attendees will receive a comprehensive workbook that contains the presentation, a detailed reference material appendix and a glossary. Continental breakfast and lunch are included.

All classes run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Upcoming dates and locations include:

• November 8, IAPA Main Office, Mississauga, Ont.

• November 10, Homewood Suites by Hilton, Cambridge, Ont.

• November 11, Vickers-Warnick, Inc., Rochester, N.Y.
