Additional aspects in risk assessment

Not only have we had the hottest years since the weather was recorded, but also an accumulation of violent thunderstorms and rainfalls in the form of hail and torrential rain. Even tornadoes are being sighted more and more frequently. What demands do these weather phenomena make on the safety of your machines and systems?

Cheers to the digital transformation

Digital Transformation, Block Chain, Big Data, Industry 4.0. Once a term has been published, the next one is already appearing. And before you even know what it means, you have to ask yourself new questions.

Functional Safety

With Industry 4.0, new technologies have also found their way into everyday working life. Humans and machines are working together closer and closer and production processes are becoming increasingly networked.

The big picture – Plant documentation

In the EC machine directive they are referred to as “assemblies of machinery”, in the industry they are mostly known as plants. However we may call them, all of them need an instruction manual. It’s just the way it is.

Christmas time = Reconstruction time

Not all employees these days are able to look forward to a peaceful Christmas holiday and a few days off. When manufacturing stops, maintenance rolls up its sleeves. Machines are reconstructed, and “time pressure” is a latent companion. This can quickly lead to inattentiveness or even carelessness. Hardly anyone considers occupational safety and health.

The 5 golden rules of safe maintenance

The chapter “Maintenance” is an integral part of operating instructions. In the case of extensive regular work, the machine often even comes with its own maintenance instructions. Components must be oiled or checked at a weekly basis in accordance with the maintenance schedule.

Creating risk assessment across continents

The cloud opens up new opportunities for the compilation of risk assessments, especially for cross-site projects. Through targeted teamwork, processes can be greatly accelerated and working time can be saved during processing.

Evaluating risks – how it’s done!

Many criteria must be met to market a machine in Europe. Rightly, because at the end it’s not just about efficiency, productivity and a positive ROI but also about ensuring safety. We know this isn’t always easy – with Hazard Rating Numbers we introduce a risk assessment procedure.

The five most common mistakes when creating risk assessments

In practice, we often look at risk assessments which have plenty of discrepancies. When we compare the documentation with the delivered products, we often find danger points which have not been taken into account or measures which have been described, do not even exist. To avoid this, we show you the five most common deficiencies.
