The presentation will discuss common machine safety risks, methods of reduction and regulatory compliance obligations as well as tips on how to implement a collaborative machine safety program at their facility. The presentation will be approximately 30 minutes in duration and consist of PowerPoint slides and the use of MPSA's machine safety trainer. This "hands-on" trainer will show participants how to recognize approved/listed safety control components and why both the placement and installation are critical for a safe and compliant machine. Approximately 5 minutes will be allocated for participant questions and answers. MPSA is a division of Airline Hydraulics and has been a turnkey machine safety provider for over 25 years. David W.
