Conceptual Safety Design (CSD)
The next step in making your machines safe
The second step in risk reduction
Our Conceptual Safety Design service gives you a higher-level overview of possible risk reduction measures for your machines. It includes illustrations and is more specific than the Risk Assessment. This enables you to understand and start planning a way forward to the implementation of necessary risk reduction measures.
If you are uncertain about how to proceed, we can provide more detailed guidance via our Formal Safety Requirement Specification.
Or if you don’t have the knowledge base or resource to carry out the remediation yourself, our engineering team can carry out the remediation on your behalf, and the process can be managed by one of our specialist project managers.Contact us for machine safety consultancy
