Rockwell addresses health and safety with show appearance

18 August 2010

Rockwell Automation is highlighting services, software and hardware, that will help plant and machinery designers tackle safety legislation, ahead of Health+Safety 10. The UK show, held in Bolton, October 13 to 14, is part of a series of regional exhibitions covering the health and safety arena.

Paul Davies from Rockwell Automation explained: "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 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 added: "SISTEMA is an independent and open application evaluation tool that is used to assess the safety performance of a machine or plant installation." Behind the software's open front end, Rockwell Automation has made available all of the functional safety data applicable to its hardware; making it straightforward for users to calculate the safety rating of their installations and address the demands of the legislation.
