Competent consultancy on the subject of machinery safety and occupational safety and health
Differentiation and job specialisation are a must in the machinery and plant construction industry in order to ensure that the extremely complex tasks are adequately processed and executed. The Schmersal Group has successfully specialised itself in the development and construction of industrial safety switchgear. As a result, we are one of the leaders on the world market in this field for many years already.
Intensive consultancy from the start
We provide our customers with very intensive consultancy when they need to select the appropriate safety switching systems and switchgear for their applications. From the customer’s point of view, this is just an ordinary yet highly important service with regard to machine safety. The fact that we are often requested to undertake other advanced tasks as well - such as comprehensive consultancy for the safety-compliant design of machinery or for the compilation of the standard-compliant documentation - clearly highlights our competence in this matter.
Many tasks - new structures
As we kept receiving requests related to these issues, we have decided to set up new structures to enable a further concentration on our core competences of the development and production of safety switchgear on the one hand and to meet the expectations of our customers with regard to the product-neutral consultancy on the other hand.
First, we set up the Safety Consulting business area, which has been implemented meanwhile in 20 countries. Certified Safety Consultants provide consultancy services regarding the functional machine safety, such as the conformity assessment of machinery and plants. The scope of duties of the Safety Consultants furthermore includes the customer-specific programming of safety control systems and the run-on time measurement on machinery and plants.
Competent contact person for complex issues
In order to ensure that our customers can find a competent contact person for complex tasks and issues regarding and even beyond the functional machine safety, we created five years ago a network of competent engineering companies with comprehensive knowhow with regard to machine safety.
The CE-Network introduces itself. We encourage you to make use of this additional service offer: it will help you along. The CE network partners will provide you with qualified support and assistance for any issue related to machine safety, thus ensuring that your machinery and plants meet the relevant standards and regulations and run durably in a safe and productive manner
