General Machine Safety Training Topics

Understanding Your Facility’s Machine Safety Needs

This one-hour session is for plant management, EHS, engineering, maintenance, automation/instrumentation personnel & machine operators. Our sessions include a practical demonstration & hands-on review of operational guarding, safety control devices and controllers, and control-reliable safety circuits using the MPSA Machine Safety Trainer.

General Machine Safety

Our one-day class is helpful to anyone responsible for the design, operation, or maintenance of machines. During the session, you'll review legal requirements, risk assessment, types of hazards, the several levels of circuit design, and available types of safety equipment. Then, learn how they all come together for a complete safety solution.

Machine Safety Training Videos

Machine Safety Training Videos

MPSA produces customized training videos to standardize employee onboarding and machine safety procedures. Safety training videos can work as part of a safety solution provided by MPSA or provided as a stand-alone service.

Unlike traditional video production companies, we have machine safety experts to help ensure the video is comprehensive and includes all the proper safety instructions relating to your machinery and processes.

We can create machine safety training videos from start to finish, including:

  • Consultation(s) to formulate the outline of your training video(s)
  • Content writing for captions and script
  • On-site filming
  • Professional film editing with the capabilities to include:
    1. On-screen captions
    2. Spliced-in footage and photos from other sources
    3. Music and voice-overs
  • Choice of the output file type and delivery method (DVD, private dropbox file, USB drive, etc.)

Do you need to train others on machine safeguarding concepts?

MPSA’s portable machine safety trainer uses four access points to teach students and personnel about compliant vs. non-compliant machine safeguarding methods.

Safety control components included:

  • Programmable safety controller
  • Safety light curtains
  • Locking safety door interlock switch
  • Non-locking, non-contact safety switch
  • Positive force-guided relays (FGRs)
  • Emergency stop

Demonstrates these key safeguarding concepts:

  • Dual-channel redundancy of the emergency-stop circuit and the safety input/output devices
  • Monitored reset of emergency stop circuit
  • Reliable control of the motor
  • Safe-distance calculation for safety light curtain placement
  • Proper selection and placement of physical guarding

If you think you have implemented a safe and compliant safety control system, think again! Our safety trainer demonstrates how the improper selection or utilization of safety components can leave you with a non-compliant solution. Ask about purchasing one for your training needs.


Provide a compliant and safe working environment.

Take the first step. Ask MPSA to identify your machine safety and compliance issues. We can do the rest.
