Step 1: Determine, which standard(s) should be applied.

Manufacturing:

  • Do you have one or more manufacturing locations, in one or different countries?
  • Is there the possibility that you are going to move equipment?
  • Would you like to create a safety standard that applies to all locations?
OEM:

  • Are you a machine manufacturer (OEM) that is servicing the local market only or do you intend to sell to international customers also.
  • Do your local customers have international facilities and tend to move equipment to these locations?
  • Your customer’s location will determine, which safety standards need to be applied

Leuze electronic is an international organization that is home in every major industrial region in this world. We are experienced in designing safe systems and /or making existing installations safe by following these standards.

  • Standards that can be applied by Leuze North-America are: US, Canadian, European.
  • Examples are: OSHA, ANSI, RIA, CSA, EN, EN-ISO, etc.

Step 2: Define project scope

  • Visual review of the equipment, its location and existing safety and control system.
  • If the machine is still in the design phase: Visual review of design specifications summary, sketches, drawings if available, similar existing equipment, etc.
  • This is for quoting purposes only.

Step 3: Hazard Assessment

  • Review all current documentation of your machine: take pictures, dimensions, and stop time measurements for safe distance calculation (if applicable).
  • If the machine is still in the design phase: Review of drawings, functional specification, URS, future place of installation, etc.
  • Interview production, maintenance and engineering personnel concerning the operation of the machine including material flow, tool changeover, maintenance, ergonomics, any known or potential hazards not addressed before the audit and any previous accidents, etc.
  • Review of existing risk / hazard assessment if any.
  • Deliverable: Formal Report with hazard points including the classification of risk associated with them.

Step 4: Safety Circuit Analysis

  • Review existing controls functionality with regard to the new safety circuit and function.
  • Prepare inspection report for individual safety components.
  • Stop time measurements for safe distance calculation (if applicable).
  • If the machine is still in the design phase: Review of schematics and control logic with Engineering team.
    • Deliverable: Formal Report about the safety performance of your system, deficiencies if there are any, necessary and possible improvements.

Step 5: Proposal and Quotation

  • Preparation of a safety proposal that allows for the highest efficiency and production possible while meeting the local legislative safety requirements.
  • Presentation of this proposal for discussion and modification if required.
  • Preparation of a quotation based on the proposal including timeline and installation if applicable / desired.

Step 6: Upon Approval from the Client

  • Design of a Safety System
  • Procurement of materials etc.
  • Build of the safety system.
  • Installation, start-up (optional)
  • Verification of functionality (validation of performance).
  • Optional system certification by a certified safety engineer (independent, third party).
