Risk assessment

The Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC requires implementation of the CE conformity assessment process when a new machine is designed or important functions of an existing machine are converted or modified. The core of this process is the risk assessment, which provides a systematic and complete evaluation of all the machine’s hazards. The procedure and evaluation criteria comply with the EN ISO 12100 standard. The process begins with a detailed description of the machine, ist use and its limits. A list of standards applicable to the machine and ist use and a list of available documents are then compiled. All danger zones in the machine are listed and then undergo a standardized Evaluation process. Measures are defined for each danger zone to decrease the risk at this location to an unavoidable residual risk.
