Features and Benefits

Award-Winning, Performance-Based Training from Rockwell Automation

To achieve peak manufacturing performance, you need technologies and processes driven by highly trained employees.

Ongoing training is an important component of a strategic approach to maintenance, and constantly improving human and process performance consistently translates into increased job productivity and overall plant profitability.

Course Purpose The standards regarding functional safety and relevant laws and directives demand that people and organizations performing responsible (accountable) tasks during all relevant life cycle phases of a machine must achieve and prove the required competencies. This is an introduction to functional safety for machinery standards and is highly recommended to prepare students for the Rockwell Automation / TÜV Rheinland engineer certification course. This course will define the design and proof requirements for functional safety of machines, according to current standards and guidelines. Practical examples will demonstrate possible techniques for machine guarding and protection. This course will also introduce organizational measures that can be instituted to protect employees and equipment. The organizational measures include quality assurance techniques and documentation for life-cycle design and validation. After completing this course, you should understand how safety devices and components are assembled and applied to reduce hazards from machinery so the necessary safety for people and the environment is achieved.
