With “Machinery Safety Evaluation” (MSE), Pilz offers a new service to evaluate the safety of machines. Customers can obtain a simple, fast overview of the safety and conformity status of machines via a dashboard. As a result, Pilz is providing an efficient addition to its comprehensive Risk Assessment or Machinery Safety Audit.
The MSE service comprises the on-site evaluation of machinery in a production plant with regard to the applicable safety and conformity requirements. In the process, Pilz not only takes into account the standards and directives applicable at the machine’s place of use or destination, but, on request, can also consider the customers’ individual, in-house specifications. The result: The current conformity status of each plant or machine can be viewed on a clear, comprehensive software-based dashboard. A list of measures with the appropriate recommended actions – sorted by priority – indicates an efficient route to a safe plant. On request, Pilz can provide support when implementing these measures.
The “Machinery Safety Evaluation” is aimed at those who wish to have the safety and conformity of their existing machinery evaluated efficiently, for full staff and liability protection. The service is also appropriate for machines that are to be checked for retrofitting or even new machinery.
Pilz offers two levels of detail for its “Machinery Safety Evaluation”, depending on the requirements. While level 1 checks the conformity of the safety status and lists recommended actions to reduce risk, level 2 also includes an evaluation of the main risks and reviews the documentation. If required, Pilz produces a conformity overview in accordance with specific company specifications, evaluates the maximum achievable performance level (PLr) for the tested subfunctions and, as an option, also provide a cost estimate for a potential upgrade. If a specific machine is used at several locations, the results for one machine can be transferred to similar machines. So, with “Machinery Safety Evaluation,” you receive a particularly efficient conformity assessment.
