Risk assessment service for machines

Tuesday, 22 April, 2008

Treotham Automation has launched a service providing risk assessments on any type of machine.

The on-site assessment will consider both the control products and the mechanical aspects of the unit.

“We believe this is a rather unique service because what we do is make a complete analysis and offer the client a prescription rather than an ambiguous multi-page report,” said the company's electrical engineer, Raju Kotecha.

“A service like this is well overdue because more often than not — perhaps due to complacency more than anything else — aspects of machine safety are given lip service, so in the current era, big companies are very fearful of the cost of accident.

“It's a black box for most people; in fact most operators don't know what they need. Because they have been working a machine for a long time they underestimate the risk associated with it.”
