Supplier News

PILZ Australia, with Fortress Systems, has produced a simple pocket sized risk assessment calculator that makes it easy for assessment teams to determine the risk category of hazardous machinery and for engineers to then design safe and compliant safety control systems and guarding.

“We saw a need in the marketplace for a simple tool that would make it easy to determine the risk category of machinery without having to look up books and tables,” Pilz general manager Frank Schrever said.

Pocket sized and easy to use the calculator is a simple slide ruler which when set against the severity of injury potential, shows the risk category level according to AS4024-1 the Australian standard for safeguarding of machinery.

It also shows the particular Pilz Safety relays most suitable to enable the correct safety control system to be implemented.

The calculator has also been noticed by Pilz head office in Germany with American and Irish branches already placing orders. Pilz 03 9544 6300.
