Safety Design

Your third Step in Machinery Safety: Safety Design

Safety Design

The aim of safety design is to reduce or eliminate danger points through detailed planning of the necessary safeguards plus the selection of appropriate technologies. It is essential to integrate a detailed safety design before the concrete implementation, in order to avoid subsequent costs and increase the machine's availability, as well as reduce downtime to a minimum. This applies whether the machine is to be built from new, retrofit or converted.
