Site survey by our experienced design engineers helps employers comply with PUWER
Our highly experienced design engineers visit your site to discuss the machinery's operational and maintenance requirements, and advise on the most appropriate guarding to comply with current standards and help employers comply with Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998. We do this for both new projects and an upgrade to an existing facility, as it ensures the proposed scheme will provide the optimum combination of safety and productivity.
Understanding of your industry
Because of our vast experience over many decades, our design engineers have developed a strong understanding of all industries which have a requirement for guarding. These include applications as diverse as aerospace, automotive, pharmaceutical, paper, packaging, printing, food and drink, energy including nuclear, oil and gas, mining and materials handling. This puts us in an unrivalled position because we are able not to only to advise on very broad issues which relate to all machine safety, but also issues specific to the way your operators use the machinery. Procter has vast experience in a wide range of industries.
On-site is normally the best place for site decisions
The other reason we prefer to meet our existing and potential customers on site is because it's generally the best place to make decisions about safety. We are able to look at every possible aspect and detail of machine safety, discuss this with the management, and machinery users, then recommend the best possible solutions
Unsure if your existing guards comply and need reassurance ?
All machinery guards designed and manufactured or assembled by Procter are CE marked and come with a Declaration of Conformity, providing customers with reassurance that their guards comply as necessary with current machine safety standards and Regulations.
Inadequate machine guarding is a significant cause of workplace injuries - as so often illustrated by HSE accident investigation reports that show an unsatisfactory standard of guarding and an over-reliance on systems of work and the 'skill' of operators as the principal means of risk reduction.
