ergo-safe creates verifiable CE documents

BUILD SAFE, SAFE MACHINERY

Identify dangers correctly, evaluate them sensibly and find the optimal measures to minimize all residual risks that arise from your product. We create the required CE verification documentation for you at a fixed price.

The performance of the ergo-safe team at a glance:

  • Safety advice, already during the planning phase and construction.
  • Norm research and analysis.
  • Independent preparation (as far as possible) of a well-founded risk assessment.
  • Coordination of necessary measures.
  • Documentation of the results in the form of auditable documents for the market surveillance authority.

ergo-safe evaluates security concepts with Sistema

Check safety-related parts of controls

We evaluate the safety-related components of your machine controls according to DIN EN ISO 13849 with SISTEMA.

SISTEMA is a manufacturer-independent calculation tool from the Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the German Statutory Accident Insurance (IFA).

The tool enables users to model the structure and architecture of safety-related control components in accordance with machine guidelines and offers an automated calculation of the reliability values including the performance level (PL) achieved.

ePaper displays reflect the light like normal paper. Texts or images are displayed permanently without the need for a float voltage.

ergo-safe simplifies document management

Electronic documents without electricity Show

Finally, the mountain of paper will soon come to an end! The new machine ordinance makes it possible to provide electronic instructions for the machine. However, the framework conditions for the use of electronic instructions are not easy to meet. The end user must have access to the manual at all times. This means that the manual can be used offline and must be available for download.

Ergo-safe offers a special end device for this purpose. The greenManual © does not consume any electricity when displaying content. Electricity is only used when browsing. It therefore only needs to be charged very rarely.

In standby mode, the display can automatically show safety-related content and does not consume any electricity.

The greenManual © is able to store over 200 GB of data. The memory is sufficient for many extensive operating instructions, circuit diagrams, spare parts lists and hundreds of supplier documents. Thanks to the WLAN function, all content can be updated anywhere in the world at any time.

ergo-safe trains your staff

Training program 2021/22

  • Would you like to learn about a simple method that will allow you to fully identify all residual risks posed by your machine?
  • Would you like to know how you can create a risk assessment quickly and effectively and reuse some of it in your operating instructions?
  • Would you like to learn a clever trick with which you can always keep the standards that you cite on the CE declaration of conformity up to date?
  • Would you like to see how easy it is to carry out a protective conductor test, an insulation measurement and a high-voltage test on your machines?

1-day seminar

Ignorance is a voluntary misfortune! In this training you will learn everything that is important to implement the CE conformity procedure for your product.

The training is aimed specifically at machine manufacturers who want to sell products in the European Community and want to act in a legally compliant manner. The following topics await you:

  • We explain to you what legal consequences you have to expect if you break the rules.
  • You will learn how you can already apply the Machinery Directive, even if your product is still in the concept phase.
  • You will learn what rights and obligations the responsible persons (e.g. the documentation officer) have.
  • We will show you how you can carry out an efficient standard research.
  • You will learn how to correctly assess hazards and how to document them in accordance with DIN EN ISO 12100: 2011.
  • We explain the structure of a legally compliant declaration of conformity and which technical documents you need to have ready in case of emergency.

 

We will show you how you can solve these tasks in our 1-day seminar.

1-day seminar

The safety of electrical products must be guaranteed. To ensure this, test marks such as VDE, SEV, UL, CSA etc. have been created. The CE marking has established itself in mechanical engineering. International standards are supposed to ensure safety here. The CE mark can be assigned at your own risk. As a rule, compliance with the standards is not checked. Therefore, the CE mark may only be attached to the product if the standard specifications have been precisely adhered to. In our training you will learn everything that is necessary to meet these requirements, such as:

  • What legal consequences you have to reckon with in the event of rule violations.
  • which requirements the Machinery Directive places on your electrical equipment.
  • everything about DIN EN 60204-1 (VDE 0113-1).
  • which safety tests and measurements you, as the manufacturer, have to carry out on your machine yourself.

1-day seminar

Control system malfunctions can cause serious accidents. SISTEMA calculates the reliability of safety-related controls in accordance with the specifications of DIN EN ISO 13849.

First, the “required performance level (PLr)” is determined. SISTEMA then checks all safety-related sub-areas of the control concept using circuit diagram information. SISTEMA reproduces the structure of these sub-areas and calculates the reliability values. At the end, SISTEMA outputs the performance level (PL) actually achieved as a report.

Working with SISTEMA requires extensive knowledge! The training is aimed specifically at machine manufacturers who want to use safety-related machine controls in a legally compliant manner. In the training you will learn

  • how to create a SISTEMA project,
  • How to check the safety-related sub-areas of your machine control according to DIN EN ISO 13849
  • how to output a SISTEMA report as a PDF document.

1-day seminar

In addition to the Machinery Directive, national laws also require that operating instructions for machines be prepared and presented in such a way that different target groups can understand and use them. Documentation appropriate to the target audience has long since ceased to be a necessary evil, but an obligation!

In a mix of theory and practice, our training conveys the most important aspects that make up a good operating manual.

  • Implementation of the requirements of DIN EN ISO 20607
  • General design principles.
  • Creation of operating instructions with Microsoft® Word (with the help of templates).
  • Creation of instructions.
  • Creation of technical illustrations with CorelDraw 2018 (using existing CAD data and graphics libraries).

What do our customers say?

Mr. S. supported us very competently and professionally in the area of CE conformity assessment procedures and risk assessment. The training content was very easy to understand and interesting. Our employees were then able to work independently on the basis of training support in the area of risk analysis.
