Machine Risk Assessment

Our Hazard Analysis Solution.

Since 1971, Rockford Systems has provided a full spectrum of machine safeguarding solutions, meeting a variety of needs, timeframes and cost requirements for many of the world’s leading manufacturers. Some organizations start the machine safeguarding process with a Machine Risk Assessment which is a critical first step in any machine safeguarding process as outlined in the following U.S. standards: ANSI B11.0, ANSI Z244.1, ANSI B11.19, ANSI B155.1, ANSI / RIA R15.06 and NFPA 79.

A task-based risk assessment is a proven, methodical tool to identify, assess, and document the hazards of operating machinery, as well as quantify and prioritize risks according to their ranking or score. The risk assessment is recommended for companies deploying new, older or refurbished machinery, or those that recently relocated metal-working machines or automation cells that need hazard identification and risk scoring. The Machine Risk Assessment deliverable is a Hazard Analysis Report.

Experienced. Trusted. Committed.

Leveraging an experienced team of safeguarding specialists, all of whom have dedicated OSHA, ANSI and NFPA 79 standards expertise, our onsite Machine Risk Assessment provides your organization with a thorough understanding of your machine hazards.  Using your machine list and our proprietary RSXpress™ mobile inspection tool, Rockford Systems will identify the tasks and associated hazards on your machinery. All applicable OSHA 1910.212 General Requirements (a)(1), ANSI B11 Safety Standards for Metalworking, ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012 Safety Standards for Industrial Robots, and NFPA 79 standards will be considered during the machine review. Suggestions will be made to lower the hazard level, and detailed documentation will be provided that outlines the results based on the scope and acceptable level of safety that your organization requires.
