Excerpts from a risk assessment:
Risk assessment related to machine safety to prove compliance with the safety requirements when providing work equipment § 7 of the Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health (BetrSichV) dated 01.06.2015.
The safety of a blown film extrusion line must be checked by the owner every 5-7 years. If there are new technical developments that can be retrofitted, the owner is also obliged to do so! Lebbing and Lauer offer these services from a single source.
This risk assessment is required in relation to machine safety to prove compliance with the safety requirements when providing work equipment – § 7 of the Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health (BetrSichV) of 01.06.2015.
The specialists from Lebbing and Lauer jointly inspect a plant in order to jointly determine, immediately after the analysis, how the safety of an existing extrusion line can be brought up to the current standard. Lebbing then implements the measures decided, modifies hardware and software, and also builds new add-on parts (e.g. cover plates and enclosures, etc.).
It must be expanded by the owner to include the complete requirements for occupational safety for the entire use under consideration and for the entire extrusion line before the line is put into operation – as required by the Occupational Health and Safety Act (ArbSchG) and the Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health (BetrSichV)!
Following successful implementation, Lauer checks the modifications and certifies these to the customer. A hazard analysis should be updated by Lauer/Lebbing every 5-7 years and the customer can then carry out a corresponding check independently.
The safety devices and functional components of the system should be checked, if necessary renewed or modified and thus brought up to the current state of the art.
In the view of Lauer CE Safety GmbH, the plant can continue to be operated after the identified potential for improvement has been eliminated and the control system has been modified.
