Today’s close relationship between OSHA regulations and ANSI standards means simply “complying with OSHA” still leaves your organization legally vulnerable.
Performing a formal risk assessment and documenting your organization’s safety mitigation efforts can serve as an important element of a legal defense in the unfortunate event of a mishap. But more importantly, the risk assessment processes enables the best ideas in your company to become incorporated into the design of your machines, achieve industry “best practices”, and improve the quality of your standard operating procedures.
Quad Plus Safety helps our clients comply with industry best practice standards such as ANSI B.11 , ISO 12100, ISO 13849, IEC 62061, and RIA R15.06.
Quad Plus Safety provides a four-step ‘Safety Review’ process and documentation package with emphasis on the new machine control and reliability standards specified in ANSI/ISO 13849 and IEC 62061. Quad Plus Safety facilitates the conduction of Task-Based Risk Assessments (TABRA) through the use of a peer group to ensure maximum compatibility with client needs.
A proactive approach to machine control safety can also optimize production. Providing controlled access to ‘muting zones’ for tasks such as adjustment, cleaning, and replenishment allow the adjoining processes to remain in a productive state.
