Safety Systems
Pre-Start Health and Safety Reviews - PHSR
The automated systems/machinery and the industrial processes of the contemporary workplace can pose serious threats to the safety of workers. As more complex processes and highly automated machines are designed, it is critically important that the machinery and industrial facilities we engineer minimize the risk posed to human life and well being, in their handling and operation of these systems. Employees conducting work around machinery and in facilities must be protected at all times from dangerous equipment and processes.
