Risk Assessment

Your first Step in Machinery Safety: Risk Assessment

Risk Assessment

Risk assessments are the key to machinery safety. They pave the way for a level of risk reduction that's both effective and economical. Many activities carried out by operators and maintenance staff represent a high risk.

Often it takes just a few factors to cause an accident. If you build, retrofit or interlink machinery, a competent risk assessment is the most important basis on which to design machinery safely or determine the necessary protection measures.

"The Risk Assessment that Pilz completes offers the best basis for safe construction your plant as well as the determination of adequate risk reduction. Pilz also shared the benefit of their knowledge with us regarding machinery safety engineering. We considered completing the risk assessment ourselves, but by engaging Pilz, we benefited from a fundamentally different approach and perspective.”

Karlfried Pfeifenbring, Responsible for the sector HSEQ, BARD-Group
