Material Handling: Applying NFPA 79 and Other Standards to Machinery Emergency Stops
In Material Handling: Applying NFPA 79 and Other Standards to Machinery Emergency Stops, you'll learn ...
- Industry standards and regulations for machinery emergency stops
- OSHA requirements for E-stops
- The three categories of stop functions defined in NFPA 79
- The implications of making a drive system NFPA 79 compliant
This course covers the requirements for machinery emergency stops, primarily in the packaging and product handling industries. The course identifies applicable standards which may be applied to the design of E-stops, with particular emphasis on the requirements of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 79, Electrical Standard for Industrial Machines (Copyright© 2011).
The purpose of this course is not to assess the risk or the safety of E-stop designs for machinery, but rather how to determine applicable approaches to ensure compliance with applicable standards.
