PeterW,

OK, now I get what you were trying to get across. And I agree.

At least the plant I was referring to requires a bell to be rung 3 times before starting. I guess if no one yells during the startup bell they figure it's ok to start the system. I know they have power lockouts near the motors and conveyors....if they use them. I try to keep my head buried in a panel and stay out of the machine area if I can. It's out of my control......I just get called when needed. The owners/managers make those decisions, I just try to make the control system do what they want it to.
