Every machine that is offered on the market or that is used inside the European Union must meet the essential safety requirements. These requirements have been recorded in the Machine Directive, which in the Netherlands has been integrated into the Machine Commodities Act. This means that the requirements are not optional, but laid down by law.
On behalf of a client, Beenen can perform risk assessment for existing, modified or new machines. In case no other measures are possible, we will be able to reduce ascertained risks with electrical measures such as light screens, safety switches or hold-to-run switches. For all of these solutions, we apply the safety level classifications PL (Performance Level) and SIL (Safety Integrity Level).
All our installations are accompanied by documents that can be added to the Technical Construction File (TCF).
After having undergone certain adjustments, the machines will often need to be re-assessed for CE certification. We can advise and support you in matters of this nature.
