Safety award for AMP Rose
To recognise industrial companies with best-in-class safety, Rockwell Automation has announced UK-based equipment builder A.M.P Rose as the winner of its fifth annual Manufacturing Safety Excellence Awards.
“The awards honour organisations that are leading the way in workplace safety by implementing a strong safety culture, well-executed compliance procedures, and effective use of contemporary safeguarding and automation technology,” says Mark Eitzman, safety market development manager, Rockwell Automation.
A.M.P Rose received an enterprise-level award for its companywide focus on safety. The company, which specialises in flexible packaging and flow-wrap machinery for many industries such as confectionary, snack and bakery, takes a proactive approach to adding contemporary safety solutions onto its machines.
“We’ve found that more clients are asking for safer machines to better protect their employees,” notes Lee Clayton, safety assessment analyst, A.M.P Rose. “We’ve always focused on making safe machines, but with this industry shift, we’ve been finding new ways to make machines more user-friendly to help prevent workers from bypassing safeguards.”
