The safety of machinery starts from the design stage, when machine manufacturer identifies and evaluates all possible hazards and hazardous points by undertaking a risk assessment and applying design principles according to the applicable standards. We provide risk assessment services to evaluate risk reduction options through inherently safe design, installing protective devices, proper training to the user, other good design measures, applying protective measures and hazard notification methods.
