Assessment of plant and machinery

Identify risks in machinery: with the Pilz plant assessment

Holistic machinery safety concepts

As a plant operator, Pilz’s plant assessment and subsequent reports provide you with sound information about the safety status of your machinery. That includes recommendations and priorities for any required improvements.

Your requirements

Are your production plants constantly undergoing changes? Or do you use new machines alongside older ones? Then you face the challenge of prioritising risk management with regard to health, safety and environmental hazards and of implementing safety strategies.

An analysis of your machines’ workflow will help. That way you can identify the key potential hazards. Based on the safety analysis we show you the additional measures needed to comply with legal requirements.

We can provide you with a complete overview of the safety status of your machinery.

Our services

Have Pilz carry out your plant assessment.

Our plant assessment of the machinery encompasses an on-site assessment with subsequent evaluation of the machinery’s condition and a formal presentation of our findings. We use a structured risk assessment for this purpose. This approach yields sufficient data and information to enable us to assess the key compliance and safety factors in your plant. All machines are assessed using a multi-parameter analysis. This will give you an estimate and priority list of the safety requirements needed for each machine.

The plant assessment includes:

  • Analysis of the hazards at individual machines
  • Assessment of the existing measures to minimise risk
  • Assessment of the machines’ compliance with applicable regulations
  • Checking the options for implementing safety functions on a machine
  • Priority list and recommendations for how to make improvements on the machinery

Your benefits at a glance

  • Gain an overview of your entire plant and potential safety risks that may not have been detected
  • As an employer, ensure greater job security and staff safety
  • With the right information in your hands you can plan safety investments effectively and optimise your plant’s profitability
  • You can apply this analysis and its recommendations to similar plant or machinery in your whole added value chain
