Rockford Systems Reopens Machine-Safeguarding Seminars to In-Person Learning

April 8, 2021

Rockford Systems, LLC, announced plans to reopen its in-person Machine Safeguarding Seminars following the suspension of live learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. The first 2.5-day live seminar is scheduled to restart April 21-23, with additional seminars set for July 21-23 and October 20-22, all held at the company's training center in Rockford, IL.

The Machine Safeguarding Seminars instruct professionals on managing a company’s risk profile and avoiding business disruption. Highly experienced instructors teach attendees how to interpret the performance language of OSHA 29 CFR, ANSI B-11 and NFPA-79 standards as each relates to specific machine applications and production requirements. Attendees receive extensive course materials, a guard-opening scale, a grinder gauge and lunch for 2 days. 

Class sizes are restricted to comply with current Illinois gathering tier mitigation requirements, and to allow for greater than 6-ft. social distancing between participants. The instructor will follow best safety practices including either a mask or a face shield while training. Attendees are required to have a daily forehead-scanner temperature check, wear masks while not eating or drinking, and limit their physical presence in the building to the training areas. All surfaces and equipment are sanitized daily.
