Rockford Systems (Rockford, IL) announces the expansion of its RS360 workplace safety portfolio with a new Remote Safeguarding Assessment service. The Remote Safeguarding Assessment is designed for customers with less complex machine safeguarding requirements that need to be evaluated for CFR OSHA 1910, ANSI B11 series standards, and NFPA 79/70E compliance.
Approximately 60 percent of all workplace amputations are caused by machinery, such saws, milling machines, drill stands, bending, rolling or shaping machines, as well as from powered and non-powered hand tools, and other materials handling activities. The Remote Safeguarding Assessment can help employers and operators understand the mechanical components of machinery and the hazardous mechanical motion that occurs at or near these machines to help avoid injury.
A machine safeguarding specialist will work with customers to provide safeguarding recommendations using the same trusted methodology that Rockford Systems uses in onsite assessments, its proprietary RSXpress software and solution set. However, in this case, the assessment is conducted using an audio or video conference that helps save the customer time and money.
