Step 2

Risk Assessment

Our machine safety specialists will assess your machinery with all relevant local and international machine safety standards. We identify any potential hazards and evaluate its risk levels using the following criterias:

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


From this evaluation, each machine will receive a Hazard Rating Number and remediation priorities will be set.

Step 3

Engineering Review

After the risk assessment, a documented machine safeguarding assessment will be provided. It outlines a clear plan that establish priorities and safeguarding recommendations to reduce identified risks, and bringing non-compliant machines into compliance. This assists in targeting funds for report high priority machines.

Based on customer’s feedback of the solution(s) in the Machine Safeguarding Assessment Report, our Safety Specialist will conduct a review in depth with your cross-functional team on site (Operator, Maintenance, Production, EHS, Engineering, and Plant Head), amend and update the Report to balance productivity and safety compliance.

Step 4

Safety Engineering

Our Safety Specialist(s) will engineer a customized safety solution for you:

  • Choosing of Safety components to achieve required safety Category
  • Choosing of safety rated pneumatic, hydraulic, etc to achieve compliance
  • Design of safety interface control panel

Step 5

Integration and installation

On site, our Integration team will:

  • Install mechanical guarding and electrical safety components
  • Integrate safety interface control system with existing machine control
  • Conduct commissioning as per job scope and the training to operator

Step 6


When safeguard installation work is completed, we perform a documented validation of all the guards, systems and devices installed. This is an in-depth check of proper position, location, function and use of each guard and device as per applicable standards.

We provide a copy of the machine’s validation documentation and sign-off forms after the validation process is completed. You may use our validation services to revalidate your machinery through its lifecycle, especially when machines are modified or repaired.
