Risk assessment software covers new machinery safety directive

Laidler Associates has announced the latest version of its software system which it says provides up to the minute guidance on risk assessments for the working environment, CE marking to the Machinery Directive and Puwer 98.

According to Laidler, the Risk Management Software System simplifies and speeds the process of assessment, as well as ensuring that no vital steps are missed. The latest version has been updated to cover the requirements of the new Machinery Directive, 2006/42/EC, compliance with which became mandatory from 29th December 2009.

Other enhancements include an option for users to decide whether they work to ISO EN 13849-1 or EN954-1 for the safety of machinery, and an on disk copy of the Health and Safety Executive's new PUWER Approved Code of Practice.

The software covers PUWER 98 requirements and CE marking for machines and it can be enhanced to suit the needs of individual users by adding modules to deal with specific requirements.

The modules guide users through the steps necessary for compliance and then generate detailed reports in a uniform format. This allows users to document risk assessment processes and, in the case of CE marking, to produce the essential technical files. If non-compliances are found, a 'to do' list is created, listing items in order of risk.

The software system runs on Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7.
