Risk assessment in machinery safety


Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever seen a risk assessment in the wild? I have been told about them, have been told they exist, have even been promised copies to design from, hell I have even made one in a TUV class. And yet here I sit, 16 years into a career in industrial controls and have never laid eyes on one.

Hello Yzna, if your question is real, my answer is real.  I see risk assessments every time I do a risk workshop facilitation, for asset integrity.  In its simplest form, it is a spreadsheet table with columns like "Threat", "Description", "Failure Mode", then "Likelihood", "Consequences" and "Risk Level".  

But there is a lot more to 'risk assessment' than a spreadsheet.  

Tell me, what is a TUV class?  And I'm curious how you could have 16 years in industrial controls and not seen a risk assessment.  They are also done daily before construction in terms of Hazard Identification processes.
