Product Details Supplier Info More products

Pilz Automation Technology is offering a plant assessment service, to help manufacturing companies assess their machinery and work equipment in a cost-effective and timely manner.

Plant assessments are conducted by Pilz consultants, who possess a detailed knowledge of machinery and the relevant safety regulations and standards.

If specialised machinery or equipment is involved, Pilz ensures that a consultant with the relevant competence is used.

For every item of plant that is assessed, the consultant prepares a report that presents an analysis of the hazards and countermeasures – which are typically guarding, interlocks and control circuits.

If any unacceptable risks are identified, the report suggests appropriate improvements that should be made.

Where necessary, and if requested by the client company, a further detailed risk assessment can be undertaken, including a Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) assessment.

Cost estimates can also be provided for upgrading the machinery or equipment to meet current standards, or Pilz can put the client company in touch with system integrators and engineering companies.

Where significant numbers of machines require attention, the Pilz consultant can assist with prioritising the actions in accordance with the risks present.

Client companies use plant assessments for a variety of reasons; some do so because they are unsure of the current safety status of their plant in relation to today’s standards; others use the Pilz consultants as a means of releasing internal resources for other projects, relating to production or quality.
