An Inside Look at the Updated ANSI B11.19 Standard: Determining Safety Distances for Devices According to ANSI B11.19-2019

About the webinar

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) provides national standards to achieve the safety of people working with industrial equipment. Join us in our fourth and final webinar to learn more about the recently updated ANSI B11.19 safety standard.

In this webinar, we will discuss updated approaches for determining safety distances for engineering control devices used to reduce risk to individuals in the workplace and the importance of considering safety distances when implementing them.

Time: 11:00am

Location: Virtual

Topics Covered

• How to ANSI B11.19 addresses calculating safety distance.
• Updates to reaching distance considerations for engineering control devices, including: vertical & horizontal presence-sensing devices, and two-hand and single actuating controls.
• Guidance for additional engineering control devices, including: single beam devices, interlocked guards, and pressure-sensitive edges and bumpers.
• New information for applying reaching distance factors to determine adequate location of safety-related manual control devices.
