Are you looking for support to help you improve machine safety? Omron STI has a number of machine safeguarding resources to help you create a safer, more productive plant, including:

OSHA Walkthrough
OSHA Walkthrough is a safety and health training software program. Omron STI has joined forces with eMedia Solutions to sponsor their Safety Animated Machine (S.A.M.™) - an interactive CD produced by a team of experts that makes learning about OSHA regulations efficient and memorable. More than ten hours of safety and health training will help manufacturers reduce workplace injuries, lower training costs, improve safety systems, and prepare for an inspection.

Gotcha Stick
Based on regulatory data, Omron STI developed the Gotcha Stick safe distance measurement tool.

This free tool is a quick and easy way to verify the safe mounting distance of fixed guards with gaps or openings.

It includes both metric and English measurements, and its folding design makes it easy to carry.

Safety and Sandwiches
Omron STI offers free, on-site safety product and application training. We call the program "Safety and Sandwiches" because the sessions are scheduled during the lunch break at your facility.

The sessions are tailored for plant safety, maintenance and engineering personnel and provide a better understanding of available machine guarding technology, requirements, and proper application.

Your Omron STI Area Safety Sales Engineer (ASE) will conduct the training.

The Omron STI ASE is trained on the operation, and application of many safety devices and the interpretation of the applicable regulatory and industry standards.
The following is a sample of Safety and Sandwiches topics:

Applications and Proper Use of Safety Light Curtains
Proper Use and Selection of Monitoring Safety Relays
Application of Safety Interlocks
Overview of the Safety PLC
Selection and use of Safety Mats and Mat Controllers
Applications for Safety Contact Strips, Bumpers and Edges
Requirements and Uses for E-stops and Rope-Pulls
Use of Safety Area Laser Scanners
Safety Circuit Requirements Based on Risk Level
