Procter Machine Guarding will be at the Safety & Health Expo 2009 (12-14 May at the Birmingham NEC) on stand O21 in Hall 2 with ISS Safety to promote their comprehensive machinery safety service. Depending on the project requirements, the companies can provide a single point of contact for risk assessments, PUWER assessments, design services, machine guarding and safety-related control systems - including safety light curtains, pressure-sensitive mats and other safety devices.
By using this service, customers benefit from the two companies' extensive knowledge and experience of machinery safety standards and regulations, as well as in-house design, fabrication of machine guarding systems, assembly and panel building facilities, plus skilled teams of engineers and installers. Furthermore, for each project one of the companies will provide a single point of contact and take overall responsibility for all aspects of machinery safety, which avoids the problems associated with using multiple contractors.
Procter says that no other company in the UK or Ireland is thought to provide such a comprehensive machinery safety service. Moreover, Procter Machine Guarding and ISS Safety are not tied to any suppliers of machinery safety equipment, so customers can specify their preferred equipment or leave the experts to select products to match the application's requirements.
If necessary, the companies can provide ongoing support for the products and systems installed. Even where the physical guarding does not need further attention, customers will appreciate the peace of mind and reduced downtime that comes with ongoing support for safety-related control systems.
