Mar. 31, 2016 - Pilz Automation Safety Canada is now offering customers the Pre-Start Health and Safety Review (PHSR) service, which it says will compliment the “whole host of services offered by Pilz that are designed to help customers implement the relevant standards and directives and develop an optimum safety strategy for entire plants.”

In accordance with section 7 of the Ontario regulation 851 for industrial establishments, prior to any worker being permitted to operate any machinery, equipment, or a process in a hazardous environment, the employer is responsible for ensuring that a thorough report is prepared that indicates that the equipment is safe. This PHSR report is required to review all of the relevant regulations pertaining to that particular type of equipment.

Pilz says its professional engineers take the responsibility to perform and document the physical examination of a company’s machinery, equipment or process in a hazardous environment. This review is carried out under the guidelines of applicable national and/or international standards, it notes.

The company says, “Safety improvement can be prioritized and implemented based on known risk, thereby ensuring compliance to standards and regulations throughout the working life of the machinery or equipment.”

The provided PHSR document includes:

• Identification of applicable standards, regulations and industry best practices
• Statement of machine limits
• Examination of all hazards
• Risk estimation
• Recommended approach for bringing the machinery, equipment, or process into compliance
• Details any additional testing necessary prior to operation
• Pilz professional engineer’s seal affixed to the report
