Safety, Technology & Innovation
Safety, Technology & Innovation is a monthly update that delivers significant product information, educational articles and industry news from Omron STI and other expert sources to help make safety work, for you.

Are You Able to Properly Identify - and Even Correct - Machine Safety Discrepancies at Your Plant?
We can, and we can help you get there with a regional Skill Builder seminar.

Omron STI's popular Skill Builders are not a "bait and switch" product sales pitch. These are technically robust, non-commercial training seminars that educate personnel on the requirements and methods of machine and process safeguarding to help them identify, and sometimes correct, machine safeguarding discrepancies.

So come build your machine safety skills with us next month at one of our three scheduled Skill Builder seminars:

  • Philadelphia, PA - May 25
  • Chicago, IL - May 26
  • San Jose, CA - May 26

The cost is just $250 per participant - and we guarantee that you will walk away with a greater understanding of methods for machine safeguarding and the correct application of guarding devices, or we'll fully refund your registration cost. Register today!

How to Assess Your Safety Culture
Are you familiar with workers' compensation Loss Run Reports? Are you utilizing them to assess the safety culture of your company, and to make adjustments accordingly?

According to Teresa Long, Director of Agency Services at the Institute of WorkComp Professionals, "Just as a balance sheet helps business owners understand the financial strength and capabilities of their company, a good Loss Run Report can guide a Workers' Compensation program in developing risk management plans, tracking the results of current risk management efforts, identifying problem areas, and projecting costs."

Learn more in Long's article, Worker's Compensation Loss Run Reports: How to Assess Your Safety Culture, as published in IMPO magazine.
