Workplace safety is more critical than ever for industrial manufacturers and OEM machine builders. As a distributor for industrial automation technologies, including safety based solutions, PCC is often asked about machine safety.  However, the topic of machine safety encompasses so much more than the selection and implementation of safety hardware. In an effort to support organizations with machine safety, PCC has partnered with technology and service providers to offer a complete safety life cycle solution.

Safety Life Cycle 

Risk Assessment
The identification of individual potential risk areas with the assignment of a SIL (Safety Integrity Level) rating to each hazard to clearly label its severity

Risk Mitigation
Development of a specific plan to minimize risks involved without impacting productivity.  This includes muting zones and the creation of truth tables to assist with safety PLC programming if required.

Hardware Selection
Selection of appropriate hardware (e.g. safety PLC, light curtain & scanners, safety mates and barriers) based upon the risk mitigation strategy and SIL requirements.

Hardware Integration
Integration of safety hardware technologies and solution meeting SIL requirements.

Hardware Validation
Step-by-step analysis of safety hardware and features to ensure they match exactly with the intended functionality created during the Risk Mitigation process.
