The Emergency Stop Button: The Button of Last Resort

Summary: “The Emergency Stop Button - the button of last resort” may not have a thrilling plot (or any plot at all for that matter) but I hope it will help guide designers to the industry standards and norms and, maybe, will pass on some of my experience and knowledge I have gained over many years of doing, reading and listening. This 2012 edition of “The Emergency Stop Button - the button of last resort” has been completely re-written and attempts to bring the application what, where & how’s up to date, providing designers with, I hope, sound methods for assessing the required levels of reliability, practical suggestions for system architecture and component selection and methods of co-ordination with machine assemblies.

What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
