In-Service Verification of Machinery

Checking machinery for safer operation

Safe Machinery Challenge

Machines experience natural wear that can lead to all kinds of accidents or incidents. 

Signs of wear include seizing, specks, abrasion, flaking, distortion, fatigue and corrosion. They can all contribute to an increase in risk of catastrophe. 

From the design stage through to everyday use, operator safety is a key priority. The complexity of many machines means that only highly qualified and multi-skilled inspectors can perform inspections effectively.

What is Machinery Inspection?

Machinery Inspection involves a series of tests performed on your machines, helping ensure that emergency stop devices are operational and that protective measures are in place. 

The inspection includes precise and independent analysis of the machinery in relation to applicable regulations. Risks are identified and actions proposed to minimize those risks.
