If you are a manufacturer of machines or an end user, you have a legal requirement to have a Risk Assessment available for all machines. SICK offer a Risk Assessment service where we will work with the operator and maintenance staff to highlight and quantify all mechanical risks. If a hazard is not protected appropriately, we will offer a method of mitigation, thus ensuring the machine is as safe as possible.
If you are using Safety Laser Scanners or Light Curtains, you are required to ensure the hazard has come to a standstill before it can cause a risk to personnel. SICK will ensure the safety device is located at the correct distance from the hazard and installed correctly in order to comply with ISO 13855. The service is offered as a single site visit or a yearly contract. Please select which service you would require when filling out the request form.
Many users of SICK Safety equipment would like to be self-sufficient when it comes to configuring and fault finding the devices. As such we offer comprehensive training on many of our safety products. We also offer standardised functional safety training.
Please highlight on the form the the products you would like us to cover if you require a bespoke package tailored to your company. Read more ...
