Machine Safety in 2017 – Machine Safety: Everyone knows it’s important, everyone knows it’s required, and everyone knows it’s just the right thing to do. But how do you move forward when standards and technology seem to be changing every day? Since 2010, it can be argued there have been more standard changes and technology advancements in machine safety than the previous 40 years combined. How are companies embracing these changes? How do they know they have embraced them correctly? As technology becomes more complicated and advanced, it can become very easy to lose sight over how that technology is providing a safer place of employment.
