Our consultants are the subject matter experts in the industry, each with more than 45 years’ experience in safety codes/standards compliance, machine guarding, risk assessment and safety training. Safety assessments shouldn't be overwhelming documents that leave businesses confused and unsure of what to do next. Our process is thorough and easy to understand so you can make the right follow-up decisions.

When assessing your machines and equipment, we determine compliance and risk based on:

OSHA regulations

Industry standards (ANSI, etc.)

Company specific guarding standards

Recognized hazards

After completing our assessment, we deliver a comprehensive personalized machine safeguarding report that clearly documents each piece of equipment with corresponding observations, machine safety or compliance issues, and a risk ranking to help you prioritize your safety plan. We determine the potential risk of each machine based on three key factors:

Frequency of use

Probability of injury

Severity of harm

As your full-service safety consultant, we walk you through each part of the assessment and help you understand the best options for creating a safety plan that will help fortify your workplace against risk. We'll then help you implement that plan so you can be fully compliant with a safer workplace that strengthens your bottom line.
