Rockwell Automation Safety Maturity Index for Machine Builders tool

Thursday, 06 July, 2017 | Supplied by: Rockwell Automation Australia


The Rockwell Automation Safety Maturity Index for Machine Builders tool has been designed to help machine builders bring safety to their machine designs.

The tool provides a self-guided assessment for machine builders to measure their performance in the three pillars of industrial safety: culture (behaviour), compliance (procedure) and capital (investment in contemporary technology). Machine builders that achieve peak performance in each of these areas can optimise safety and productivity in their own operations and use that expertise to develop better machine designs.



The Safety Maturity Index (SMI) for Machine Builders tool measures and reports a machine builder’s performance in each of the three safety pillars on a scale of one to four — SMI 1: minimising costs, SMI 2: legal compliance, SMI 3: operator safety and SMI 4: customer value. The tool also provides insights into which areas need the most improvement. Machine builders can use the tool to identify inconsistencies between facilities and benchmark themselves against peers.


The tool is applicable to any industry, any company size and any location. It also aligns with the Safety Maturity Index tool designed for end users, which has been used by manufacturers since its release in 2013. Information shared in the tool is confidential and each company’s profile is not associated with its response or results.
