Safety engineering may need rethinking in manufacturing plants. The future of process is digital, which creates many opportunities for plant operators to enhance efficiency, increase flexibility and make their plants future-proof.

This edition of Talking Industry addresses the issue of how implementing safety initiatives can enhance efficiency, while addressing the risks.

Discussion points will include:

Emerging trends of machinery-safety, how the technology can be integrated into new and existing assets as well as the contribution the newer technology can make to any manufacturing organisation’s risk-reduction program.

Wireless safety, how a TÜV-certified system for safety requirements up to PL e / Cat. 4 or SIL 3 can aid flexibility in safeguarding hazardous areas as well as greater efficiency and economy where conventional cable runs would struggle.

A focus on maintaining simple, cost effective and functional safety while integrating industrial communication and deterministic control systems.
