Manufacturing Automation - Safety Upgrade of Plastic Manufacturing Plant

Staley Automation recently worked together with a plastics manufacturer to audit the safety of machinery following a Worksafe investigation.  Staley Automation engineers worked with the client to identify the safety hazards and together calculated a risk analysis of the dangers found on site.  The engineers also proposed solutions and provided a preliminary design to minimise the hazard.

​The solution included the following:

  • ​Develop a functional description of the safety control system

  • Operator training

  • Separate zones on the machine to isolate local area

  • Access control

  • Motor stand-still detection
