Remote Safeguarding Assessment

Same Great Machine Safeguarding Assessment, Just Remote.

For companies with an immediate critical need due to an accident or OSHA citation, companies with less complex guarding requirements or customers not allowing visitors during COVID-19, Rockford Systems offers Remote Safeguarding Assessments that are economical alternative to onsite assessments and offer the same comprehensive compliance reporting as outlined by ANSI B11. The Remote Safeguarding Assessment service is ideal for customers with a few basic cutting and turning machines, including drill presses, vertical mills, grinders, small lathes, saws, sanders and riveters.

Experienced. Trusted. Committed.

The Remote Assessment service is available by appointment for customers with a limited number of basic cutting and turning machines, including drill presses, vertical mills, grinders, small lathes, saws, sanders and riveters. A machine safeguarding specialist will work with customers to provide safeguarding recommendations using the same trusted methodology that Rockford Systems uses in onsite assessments, its proprietary RSXpress™ software and solution set. However, in this case, the assessment is conducted using an audio or video conference that helps save the customer time and money.

Using your machine list and electrical schematics and our proprietary RSXpress™ mobile inspection tool, Rockford Systems will perform a remote audit per 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 to identify machinery tasks and hazards.
