Harnessing the power of safety and operational data can substantially improve safety compliance and performance.

Accessing safety system data and transforming it into meaningful information results in increased machinery productivity and minimises downtime.

To gain more diagnostic data, traditional safety devices required more complex wiring solutions. With a SMART Safety solution, you can now access more diagnostic data and simplify your wiring system. An integrated SMART Safety solution provides all the data needed to create a comprehensive picture of the status of the machine or production line.

Benefits of SMART Safety

Increase productivity

By capturing system diagnostics

Minimise downtime

With diagnostic information from the safety system

Enhance protection

Protect your people and assets

Broad product portfolio

Benefit from the broadest portfolio of safety products, solutions and services

Challenges to Safety

Worker behaviours

The number 1 reason for safety system failures is that the solution is bypassed.

Evolving workforce

A major workforce shift is underway worldwide, and the safety implications are significant.

Machinery stoppages

Companies often have minimal visibility into why or when machinery stoppages occur.

Regulatory compliance

Compliance with complex global safety standards is increasingly essential but also challenging.

Emerging technologies

Advanced safety technologies enable companies to address safety & productivity in new ways,

Data management

Outdated data collection and reporting methods. Manual entry of safety data for logs, reports, etc.
