Designing production safety measures from the beginning is far more cost effective than re-engineering after an accident. In addition, risk assessment documentation may soon be a requirement for machine builders and equipment owners in the U.S. rather than just suggested good practice.
Manufacturers face a double-edged sword when it comes to safety. Not only do you need to be concerned with the safety of the machines you manufacture, and your workers, but also the safety of workers using your machines in the plants of your customers. Losses in either venue will erode profits.
AHT’s risk assessment team understands property protection, fire protection, disaster recovery, worker safety, and product design and engineering. We use extensive checklists and special software to help manufacturers lower their overall risk profiles and leverage it to increase profitability.
