Rockwell Automation expands programme to help companies with machine safety

14 November, 2019

Industrial companies trying to keep up with today’s complex requirements for machine-safety systems while staying as productive as possible now have more help available to them through the Machine Safety System Integrator programme.


Rockwell Automation has added three new members to the programme, which connects companies with system integrators that have expertise in current safety standards and a track record of designing safety systems. The programme now has 45 members located around the world.

“Working with qualified system integrators helps manufacturers keep systems compliant with current standards while improving productivity,” said Lee Lane, vice president and general manager, sensing, safety and connectivity business, Rockwell Automation. “Safety isn’t just another box to check. Having a positive safety culture, helping to ensure compliance, and using contemporary safety technology is shown to reduce unplanned downtime and significantly improve worker safety, hiring and retention.”
