Machine Safeguarding Assessment

Our Project Estimate.

Since 1971, Rockford Systems has provided a full spectrum of machine safeguarding solutions, meeting a variety of needs, time frames and cost requirements for many of the world’s leading manufacturers. At the forefront of our managed services are Machine Safeguarding Assessments, which is the critical first step in any machine safeguarding process as outlined by ANSI B11, especially for companies deploying new, older or refurbished machinery, or those that recently relocated metal-working machines or automation cells that need safeguarding solutions and associated costs. This turnkey service takes the guesswork out of compliance to help keep operators safe, machines productive and processes online. The Machine Safeguarding Assessment deliverable is a Compliance Report and Safeguarding Project Proposal.

Experienced. Trusted. Committed.

Leveraging an experienced team of safeguarding specialists, mechanical and electrical engineers, all of whom have dedicated OSHA, ANSI and NFPA 79 standards expertise, our onsite Machine Safeguarding Assessment provides manufacturers with safeguarding peace of mind.

Using your machine list and electrical schematics and our proprietary RSXpress™ mobile inspection tool, Rockford Systems will perform a full conforming 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. If your company has additional specific safeguarding requirements above and beyond OSHA 1910.212 and ANSI B11.0-2015, they should be provided before the site visit and will be incorporated into the assessment.
