Safe Access Control for Industrial &
Manufacturing Operations


With advancement in technology in recent years, many manufacturing processes have evolved to include even more machine automation, leveraging the benefits of increased production capacity, efficiency and quality, while also delivering a reduction in production operating costs. The growing use of machinery has also increased the potential risk of exposure to hazards. Modern day processes must incorporate data handling, a high level of automation, strict scheduling and rigorous safety controls.

The challenge for many businesses is maintaining the highest level of health & safety during normal operation, cleaning & maintenance cycles, while keeping downtime to a minimum.

Process control and risk control is a high-level focus for factories, mining quarries, and manufacturing production plants. KIRK trapped key interlock systems help control risk and guard against entry into areas where hazardous energy is present and machine guarding is a necessity. A defined sequence of operations with KIRK interlock systems ensure a sequential safety process is followed every time, protecting equipment and saving lives.
