Developed through the OSHA and Association for High Technology Distribution (AHTD) Alliance, the Machine Guarding Technology Training Seminar provides OSHA staff with technical information about the use of machine guarding devices and robotics in the workplace.
The seminar, taught by a member of AHTD, focuses on high technology equipment such as: safety interlock switches; guard locking devices (e.g. trip cords and safety mats); safety light curtains; two hand trip controls and safety laser curtains. During the training, the attendees also learn about safety issues associated with robotic equipment, the types of robotics used in the workplace and the applicable OSHA machine guarding and robotics-related ANSI standards. In addition, AHTD brings a number of machine guarding devices to provide the attendees with hands-on information. 305 attendees have participated in the following seminars:
