The Fluid Power Safety for Machine Guarding book from Ross Controls covers safety-related topics pertinent to machine guarding for pneumatic equipment. Topics include control integrity, energy isolation, alternative lock-out, risk assessment for fluid power, safety standards, clutch/brake controls for mechanical presses, understanding press counterbalance systems, as well as a frequently asked questions segment. Safety standards and how they apply to fluid power equipment (both pneumatic and hydraulic) are discussed with examples on how to get started with risk assessment. The book also includes references to important safety standards. A CD ROM companion titled Risk Locator for Machinery with Pneumatic Power is a computer program that prompts the user to answer questions about a machine’s operation, then points out areas of safety concern to be considered when performing a risk assessment of the equipment.
