WEBINAR: Minimum Distances for Safety Control Measures

A recording of our recent webinar on Safety Distance is now available.

Fixed guards and presence sensing safety devices are often used as control measures for risk reductions. Discover the crucial factors behind implementing these measures - particularly the considerations for their strategic placement to ensure compliance and effectiveness in risk reduction. In this webinar you will master the art of calculating and implementing minimum safe distances.

During this webinar attendees will learn about:

  • The need for a minimum safe distance and when they apply;
  • Requirements and standards focused on determining minimum safe distances;
  • Methods to calculate and implement minimum safe distances.
