Machinery safety system integrator programme

03 February 2015

Rockwell Automation has created the Machinery Safety System Integrator program to help manufacturers identify best-in-class safety system integrators – with current safety standards expertise, a proven track record in building safety systems, and knowledge of productivity-enhancing safety technologies.

A recent Aberdeen report found best-in-class organisations are 81% more likely than low performing organisations to utilise outside services to design and install compliant machinery safety solutions. “The challenge comes in finding and vetting the most capable provider for the job,” said Mark Eitzman, manager of safety market development at Rockwell Automation.

In response, Rockwell Automation has created the Machinery Safety System Integrator program to ease the process and help connect manufacturers to machinery safety system integrators. Program candidates are required to meet stringent requirements and complete a rigorous assessment and education process. Only existing Rockwell Automation Solution Partners or Recognised System Integrators qualify for the program. All partners will have between three and five years of demonstrated machinery safety experience. Rockwell Automation recognises third-party certification from industry-accepted organisations, such as TÜV or exida. 
 
Rockwell Automation machinery safety experts then conduct a candidate assessment to determine whether any additional training or experience is required. The candidate’s safety engineers must then complete training modules on topics, such as global safety standards, safety risk assessment practices, and different types of safeguarding applications. Lastly, the candidate must submit a machinery safety project to ensure it demonstrates methods consistent with global standards.
