If there is only one aspect of machine guarding to be implemented, it would have to be Control Reliability. Many safety-related control systems do not have this vital aspect. If a hazardous machine does not have Control Reliability and an accident occurs, you are subject to fines, lawsuits, and increased insurance costs. We can help you comply with this critical aspect of machine safety.
Often times, employers and OEM’s:
Don’t make this same mistake! Get the right information on Control Reliability – it is required and enforced. It has been stated: “If you’re going to worry about the law, worry about OSHA. if you’re going to worry about lawsuits and liability, worry about ANSI.”
Risk assessment and control reliability are two major aspects of machine guarding. Control Reliability is defined and required if indicated by risk assessment in the following U.S. standards: RIA 15.06, ANSI B11.19, ANSI Z244.1, ANSI B155.1 and NFPA 79. Machine Safety Specialists can help you with the proper designs.
