• The purpose of this Machine Safety Assessment is to determine if uncontrolled hazards exist to the specified equipment which could lead to injuries to persons

    Risk matrix 2.jpg
  • Risk matrix 3.jpg
  • Each hazard identified will be assigned a probability and severity ranking which will subsequently be used to determine the overall risk of the hazard. Additionally, an overall risk ranking will be assigned to the machine using the rankings given to each individual hazard.
