Safety First! – Categories and Terms Part 2: Modern Machine Safety – Talk the Talk so you can Walk the Walk

That structure will result in a controller that accomplishes all the tasks involved with the lowest acceptable risk to equipment and staff. In part 2, we will dig deeper into terms and categories to understand their impact on machine safety.
