We deliver solutions that strike the right balance between worker safety and process optimization
- Machine safety assessment and improvement projects
– Are your machines safe to use?
– Does (the use of) your machines meet the requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and the Directive 2009/104/EC – use of work equipment?
- Consultancy on CE marking
– We support companies that want to demonstrate their products’ compliance with the requirements of applicable CE marking directives
- Machine safety training; design for safety
- Electrical safety training; NEN3140
- Incident investigation from a ‘no blame’ perspective while providing sustainable solutions
We implement a step-by-step approach towards “Workable Safety” with a strong focus on sustainable safety solutions.
- During a first visit we perform a quick scan on machine safety to get an impression of the actual situation and culture.
- Your employees will be intensively involved and during a machine safety workshop they learn to identify machine related hazards and increase awareness on signaling risks.
- Solutions are worked out and the first improvements are implemented. In several sub-sequential visits the improvements are reviewed and the effect on safety, quality and production is evaluated.
- Our approach does not stop with the delivery of a report, we build a lasting relation.
Benefit of this approach is being able to set priorities and initiating continues improvement.
