Occupational Health and Safety

Safer work­places start with safer machin­ery. The days of “Com­mon Sense” are long gone, with cut­ting edge tech­nolo­gies bring­ing new, sophis­ti­cat­ed, haz­ards into your work­place. On top of that. keep­ing up with Occu­pa­tion­al Health and Safe­ty reg­u­la­tions and stan­dards can be a con­fus­ing and chal­leng­ing task, even more so if you work in mul­ti­ple mar­kets. It is often dif­fi­cult to know where to begin. We help you nav­i­gate your way through this maze of leg­is­la­tion, reg­u­la­tion and over-com­pli­ca­tion. Every­thing we do is about keep­ing work­ers safe, every day.

Machinery Risk Assessment

We spe­cial­ize in risk assess­ment and safe­ty-relat­ed con­trols for machin­ery. We help machin­ery users assess the risks from machin­ery in their work­places. Risk assess­ment is a pri­ma­ry tool — or should be — for machine design­ers. Using risk assess­ment in your design process gives you bet­ter con­trol over the design of safe­ty sys­tems, pro­vides you with sound data for mak­ing safe­ty-relat­ed deci­sions and gives you sol­id evi­dence of due dili­gence when you need it. If risk assess­ment is new to you, we can help. We pro­vide risk assess­ments as well as train­ing ser­vices so that you can con­tin­ue to assess risk with your own team in the future. We help machine builders assess the risks pre­sent­ed by the machines they build. Com­pli­ance inSight Con­sult­ing pro­vides you with the guid­ance you need to reduce those risks, mak­ing your equip­ment safer with­out sac­ri­fic­ing pro­duc­tiv­i­ty — while part­ner­ing with you to make this goal achiev­able and affordable.

Machine Guarding

We bring sound judge­ment, strength­ened by more than a decade of expe­ri­ence to the analy­sis of machine guard­ing, includ­ing design of safe­ty-relat­ed con­trols, and reli­a­bil­i­ty analy­sis under CSA, ANSI and ISO rules — right up to the lat­est edi­tion of ISO 13849–1. We’ve test­ed hun­dreds of light cur­tain, safe­ty mat and two-hand con­trol instal­la­tions on pow­er press­es, trans­fer machines, robot­ic assem­bly cells, and many oth­er appli­ca­tions. We’ve seen these instal­la­tions done well and we’ve seen the many ways they can go wrong.

Industrial Lasers

Lasers are one of the 20th Cen­tu­ry’s great inven­tions. There are thou­sands in use in indus­tri­al work­places around the world, from picow­att lasers used for telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions, to mul­ti-kilo­watt cut­ting lasers. 

If you use lasers in your work­place to mark, cut, weld or heat-treat prod­ucts, laser haz­ard assess­ments are a must, and if you build machin­ery that incor­po­rates lasers, under­stand­ing the haz­ards is crit­i­cal to prop­er safe­guard­ing for your employ­ees and your cus­tomers. We can pro­vide you with laser haz­ard analy­sis under the US, Cana­di­an, and Inter­na­tion­al stan­dards using ANSI Z136.1, CAN/CSA/IEC E60825‑1 and IEC 60825–1. We can eval­u­ate the safe­ty of lasers inte­grat­ed into man­u­fac­tur­ing sys­tems under ANSI B11.21.

Our goal is the same as yours — cre­at­ing safer work­places for every­one. Putting safe­ty first means we can ALL go home to be with the ones we love.
