Safety strategies cannot be developed just at the drawing board. At the latest, therefore, after a walk through the plant with a safety expert, many clients are grateful for concrete proposals toward improving machine safety.

Safety as a company value

A poorly accessible emergency stop button, missing protection against access from behind, ”optimization” of a safety device that improves processes sometimes it’s the small things, in other instances serious flaws that render a machine theoretically made safe hazardous nonetheless. The associated risks of injury for employees and liability risks for responsible company staff can be prevented by a walk through the plant with a safety expert.  

Inspecting the plant, understanding the improvement potentials

The specifically trained safety experts from SICK are endowed with wide-ranging application expertise and have a firm grasp concerning the use of the relevant guidelines and standards. They view the possible risks of the machine from the aspect of the entire life cycle: from installation to start-up and on to regular operations and maintenance all the way to disposal. The experts identify the most important safety aspects related to all machines and facilities within a production plant, subsequently prioritizing them according to risk potential in order to make recommendations for effective safety strategies. Thus, the client gains an overview of the risks as well as a description of the residual risks that still exist.      

From the snapshot to the safety concept
