Machine Risk Assessment

Fulfil your legal safety compliance for machines

So you can focus on what you do best - manufacturing.

Manufacturers of machinery are required by law to complete a design-based risk assessment as they design and build machinery, even when the machine is made for the manufacturer’s own use.

New machinery

Before putting a new machine into service, there are three questions to be answered:

  1. does the new equipment carry a CE mark?
  2. has a risk assessment been carried out for the environment the machine is used?
  3. has an assessment been carried out in accordance with “Use of Work Equipment Directive”?

If there is a “yes” to all three questions - production on this machine can start.

Existing machinery

It is also a general legal requirement for the end-user to complete a risk assessment at regular intervals during the machine’s life, and again a “Use of Work Equipment Directive” assessment whenever there is a change in the machine’s use. A risk assessment is also required before and after a machine is moved if being relocated. Our Machine Risk Assessment service (complete in ccordance with EN ISO 12100) helps you fulfil these requirements in accordance with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.

Risk reduction... and more

You will receive a report that identifies basic risk reduction requirements for reducing hazardous events. You will also receive information on additional safety measures and safety related control functions where necessary.

Key features

A mathematical evaluation of all risks posed by associated hazards and tasks identified using the following factors:

  • Degree of Possible Harm (DPH)
  • Probability of Occurrence (PO)
  • Possibility of Avoidance (PA)
  • Frequency and/or duration of Exposure (FE)

This evaluation produces:

  • A Risk Score Analysis Number
  • Identification of risk reduction methods
  • A Risk reduction priority list based on the RSNs
  • Identification of safety related control functions
  • Recommended remediation time frame
