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
