Reducing Risk, Protecting People
Machine Safety & Risk Assessment Training Programs

Understanding your risk and liability is essential to good business practices. With our training programs, you’ll get clear, detailed safeguarding answers for today’s highly automated machinery. We offer on-site and online options, tailored to your company’s safety needs.

All too often, organizations don’t adhere to OSHA’s guidelines until it’s too late – “too late” meaning they’re being sued by an employee because of a workplace-related injury due to negligence or they’re receiving a fine on behalf of OSHA because of improper safety precautions. Some of these regulations and standards may seem trivial and meticulous, but they’re created with a purpose: to keep people safe.  Allow our experts at Machine Safety Specialists (MSS), a Clarion Safety System's subsidiary, to properly train your staff on all things machine safety and prevent you from having to pay for negligence in the future.

We provide a variety of training programs to empower and protect your team. Our training covers advanced machine safety issues for automated machinery, including OSHA nuances, control reliability and functional safety, application of ISO safety standards, risk reduction, risk management, and liability considerations.


We offer on-site, instructor-led training programs and online instructor-led training programs – as well as a two-day live, online instructor-led training class.
