Come say hello to Adam Haroz, one of CTI’s Engineering Managers, as he will be speaking at this year’s Region IV VPPPA Conference in Chattanooga, TN on June 19th.
Adam Haroz will be discussing how the regulations governing industrial machinery have shifted the need for conducting risk assessments on robotic systems from a good practice to now a mandatory requirement. The discussion will emphasize the benefits of conducting an on-site risk assessment. It will also highlight the need to identify the hazards and assess the potential risks associated with robot operations when selecting and designing safeguarding measures. He will review the methodology for conducting a risk assessment for different robotic systems, as well as other industrial equipment, how to assess the adequacy of current safeguards, and methods for determining the risk reduction measures required.
The Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) is designed to encourage cooperative efforts between employees, management and OSHA for the purpose of improving workplace safety and health. The VPP concept recognizes that workplace safety and health can be enforced in a compliance atmosphere and can be enhanced in a cooperative atmosphere. OSHA recognizes and partners with worksites that demonstrate excellence in Safety and Health.
Region IV VPPPA is the region that serves the eight Southeast states. (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee)
CTI’s President, PH Haroz, has completed a goal 9 years in the making. PH recently completed running 50 marathons in all 50 states. Now that the US is off his list, we look forward to seeing him run a marathon on every continent. Keep up the great work!
Norcross, GA – Building on its 30+ year legacy as a leading environmental and safety engineering firm, CTI (Conversion Technology, Inc.) announces a new and exciting strategic partnership with industrial safety solutions manufacturer, Fike and the world’s leading bolted steel tank, silo and aluminum dome manufacturer, CST Industries.
Conversion Technology Inc. (CTI) is celebrating its 30th year of business. For the last 30 years, CTI has been assisting our clients across the United States achieve environmental and safety compliance.
CTI began its existence as a firm that designed systems for the conversion of waste material to energy and other useful by-products. We completed the design and installation of a system that was fueled by cotton seed husks and was able to generate the energy required for the drying of raw cotton. This system converted the cotton waste to energy. This style of energy conversion was the origin of the name “Conversion Technology Inc.”
