The application’s 9-stage process will help you:
  • Identify all relevant sources of information for your risk assessment
  • Establish all the limits of your machinery (physical environment, supply, operating modes, etc.)
  • Identify all reasonably foreseeable hazards, hazardous situations and/or hazardous events
  • Select the most appropriate risk estimation scale and assumptions for quantifying the risk level
  • Add protective measures for each hazard and quantify their effectiveness
  • Export your assessment in a well designed and printer-friendly PDF or Excel formats

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step risk assessment    
Risk assessment is probably the first and one of the most important compliance documents in the initial stages of machinery design and CE marking process. Yet, more often than not, this report receives least amount of engineering attention or the activity is left due at the very end. The consequences speak for themselves: hazards and safety deficiencies identified in later stages of development or in the field are exponentially harder and costlier to fix. Risk assessment failures can also lead to human injuries, loss of reputation and litigations or worse (like in this case, or this case).
Do not leave the quality of this document to chance. Use yInterlock's intuitive and simple steps to create an effective risk assessment that identifies hazards early in the desing stage.

Risk assessments are also hard to get right, especially for complex machinery. This discovery and reporting activity requires a good level of understanding of the:
  1. machinery use and reasonably foreseeable misuse,
  2. risk assessment standards such as ISO 12100-1 and ANSI B11.0,
  3. general machinery/functional safety standards,
as well as at least a few years of practical engineering experience or engineering degree.
yInterlock's step-by-step guided articles and practical examples will help inexperieced users to understand and navigate the complex risk assessment process.
