Safeguarding Reviews

We pro­vide exper­tise on safe­ty require­ments of safe­guard­ing sys­tems for your equip­ment whether it’s old or new, in Cana­da, the EU, UK and North­ern Ire­land, or the USA.

Safe­guard­ing review is the process of exam­in­ing the exist­ing risk assess­ment and safe­guard­ing equip­ment, includ­ing phys­i­cal guards and any safe­guard­ing devices.


Typ­i­cal­ly, a safe­guard­ing review pack­age includes a Find­ings Report – out­lin­ing the scope, the leg­is­la­tion, reg­u­la­tions and stan­dards employed, any con­trolled doc­u­ments used as source mate­r­i­al (such as mechan­i­cal draw­ings, schemat­ics and man­u­als), and a detailed list of non-con­form­ing items found dur­ing the review. Spe­cif­ic guid­ance on cor­rec­tive action(s) is pro­vid­ed as a part of the review, and addi­tion­al con­sult­ing is avail­able to assist design­ers to apply the require­ments. We can also review any safe­guard­ing mod­i­fi­ca­tions made based on our Find­ings Report, and val­i­date the ade­qua­cy of the modifications.
