Machine Design and Guarding



The need to protect the public and workers from hazardous machinery has been recognized for decades, but the means to do so have evolved considerably over time.

Rigorous lock-out/tag-out procedures and machinery guarding devices such as proximity sensors and physical barrier guards have greatly improved safety during use and maintenance of equipment with the potential to injure operators.

We have analyzed accidents involving manufacturing equipment, asphalt pavers, ski lifts, conveyors, power plant equipment and a variety of mechanical devices.

Our engineers can help you evaluate whether or not equipment involved in injury accidents complied with proper engineering design practice and applicable industry standards.
