Machine Guarding Industy Vet Enters Blogosphere

CableOrganizer.com, a Fort Lauderdale-based provider of cable, wire, and equipment management-related products, today announced that Jim Norton, a 25-year veteran of the machine guarding industry, is now moderating its OSHA Safety Standards blog located at http://cableorganizer.com/osha-regulations/. Norton is both the leader of the national OSHA/AHTD alliance and president of JHN Group, a consulting firm that provides guidance and instruction on machine guarding and risk assessment issues. Prior to joining JHN, he was vice president and director of safety technology for Gibson Engineering.

Norton has worked extensively within OSHA, having trained the agency's senior staff at the U.S. Department of Labor and Enforcement and Outreach personnel from the New England Region. He also served as an editorial board advisor for the Lockout/Tagout, Machine Guarding, and Robotics sections of the organization’s health and safety Web site. He has presented machine guarding and risk assessment seminars on behalf of the Northern New England, Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island Safety Councils, and served as a guest lecturer at Keene State College’s New England OSHA Training Institute Education Center. In addition to frequently advising OSHA in the selection of technologies for employee safety and machine guarding, Norton also has provided risk assessment and machine guarding consultation to many large U.S. corporations.
