James McGregor, global head of Category – Test, Tools and Production Supplies and Premier Farnell and Farnell element14 said: “As the development distributor, we are here to support our customers from the very beginning of product development, right through to ensuring that production lines stay running. Regular maintenance ensures the reliability of the infrastructure or the productivity of a company as well as playing an important role in providing safer and healthier working conditions. We have created this new resource area to provide our customers with access to information on safety and maintenance all in one place – making it easier for our customers, whether they are keeping up with legislation or developing a new safety framework.”
This dedicated resource emphasises the importance of safety being taken into account during all stages of production from design, manufacturing, installation, adjustment, operation, and maintenance – right through to final scrapping. The content includes information on the ways in which machine, facility and personal safety can be achieved using safety interlock switches, safety signs and clothing.
