Welcome to our theme page Safety First!
Safety at work is not just about working with safe and approved means (such as the use of machines, tools, equipment and installations), safe behavior is just as important. Clear information, clear work instructions, the correct use of resources and regular maintenance and inspection - often mandatory - increase safety. Employers and employees are jointly responsible for this.

Well preparedRead moreYou may think: "if my frequency drive fails, I'll order a new one right away". But is a one-to-one replacement still available? At what point do you want to have this information? When production stops, or perhaps a little earlier? You may not realise it, but a Danfoss AC drive often lasts more than 10 years.
The fluorescent tube goes out!Read moreThe most striking measure is the phasing out of obsolete fluorescent lamps, such as T2, T8 and T12 (popularly known as TL tubes). Also notable is the phasing out of halogen lamps and compact fluorescent lamps (popularly known as low-energy lamps). These lighting sources must be replaced because they are not energy-efficient and because there are sufficient energy-efficient alternatives on the market. With this measure, the commission aims to save almost 42 TWh in 2030.
You'd rather know in advanceRead moreComponents of an automation system are normally used for a very long time during their life cycle. It is therefore questionable whether the component is still available in the event of failure. It is therefore important to manage the life cycle proactively. Timely information about the availability of spare parts, for example, is one of the most important planning criteria here.
A rugged all-rounderRead moreWhen difficult-to-detect workpieces (curved, glossy, or matt surfaces) cannot be detected correctly, sensors need to be reselected or adjusted. The E3AS Series provides reliable detection with less effect of curved, glossy, or matt surfaces, reducing design and commissioning time.
