Electronic Systems Receives first OSHA Award for Safety


Reading time ( words)

Electronic Systems Inc. recently received a two-year certificate of recognition award for establishing and implementing an exemplary safety and health management system under the OSHA Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program.

The SHARP award is the first for Electronic Systems Inc., which is located in Sioux Falls. OSHA has recognized only two other firms in South Dakota.

To qualify for SHARP status, a company must:

  • Undergo complete and comprehensive safety and health audits;
  • Correct all hazards identified by the consultant;
  • Implement and maintain an exemplary safety and health management system; and
  • Record lower company lost-workday injury and illness rate and total recordable case rate below the national average.

“A SHARP inspection is a very rigorous activity for a company to undergo and Electronic Systems has made a very impressive effort to receive this recognition. It is particularly impressive to see how well Electronic Systems did in this application,” said Jon Puetz, program director for South Dakota State University’s Engineering Extension office, which administers the SHARP program under the OSHA-funded consultation program. The OSHA funding allows Engineering Extension to provide assistance to small private-sector businesses and help them comply with federal OSHA regulations without cost, fines or citations. “The work Electronic Systems Inc. does, and firms like it, pays off by building a stronger safety culture and a safer workplace for their employees and guests.”

Initiatives like the IPC Connected Factory Exchange (CFX) and IPC-Hermes-9852 underpin efforts within the industry to develop standards and help create a smart factory. These M2M communication standards, guided in part by Industry 4.0, are altering the manufacturing process by improving metrics such as first pass yield and throughput by applying autonomous process adjustments.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.
