Inspecting the safety systems



The Industrial Safety and Health Act of 02.10.2002 stipulates a mandatory annual inspection of all safety systems. These inspections can be done as part of the scope of services of a maintenance contract, or simply as an isolated service, as long as it is done by a specially trained expert with the appropriate qualifications for implementing inspections pursuant to Section 10 Industrial Safety and Health Act.

What do we check during the inspection?

  • We check the proper functioning of movable and fixed housings
  • We check the proper functioning of light curtains by carrying out overrun traverse measurements
  • We check the proper functioning of 2-hand controls by carrying out overrun traverse measurements
  • We check the proper functioning of the connections between the hydraulic block, cylinder and the fail-safe hydraulic valve combination
  • We check the proper functioning of interlocking in the electric controls
  • We check the proper functioning of safety valves
  • We inspect all safety-relevant piping and hose lines
  • We inspect all covers and insulations
  • We inspect all protective earth systems
  • We inspect all clamping devices
  • We inspect all warning labels

It is also necessary after an Accident Prevention Law UVV inspection to document in the press inspection log all of the safety inspections which have been carried out. Properly maintaining a press inspection log is mandatory for the operators of a press, and the log must be made available at all times for inspection. Maintaining the press inspection log and making it available for inspection is part of our scope of services during an Accident Prevention Law (UVV) inspection.

If you are interested in this service, then please contact us at any time. We will be happy to make you an individual offer to inspect the safety systems of your presses and installations.
