Pilz Services – Safe Premises, for Optimum Protection of Your Staff

March 23, 2023

Services you can expect from Pilz

CENELEC standards, Machinery Safety Directive, CE conformity… Pilz has perspective in this standards’ jungle. They provide support, from project planning and programming through to documentation and the approvals process. As for drawing up compliant technical documentation for the authorities – you can leave that to Pilz as well.

For this purpose, Pilz has tailored their machinery safety and automation services to the railway.

Pilz provides support, from analysis through to implementation of your new safety concept. You get everything from one place and in future have no more worries about your staff’s welfare.

Individually produced and systematically conducted risk assessment

As part of the risk assessment Pilz checks your premises in accordance with the applicable national or international standards. In doing so, they consider machinery safety as well as railway technology standards, such as CENELEC. Once Pilz has identified and assessed existing hazards, they’ll provide you with recommendations as to where you can improve your safety measures and reduce hazards.

Safety concept

The door to your washing plant should only open when there is no train in the plant. Equally, interlockings should only be accessible to authorised personnel or lifting platforms should remain raised when there are mechanics underneath them. In these situations, Pilz’s fixed and movable guards provide the necessary safety in conjunction with the safe controller. What’s more, they work with you to develop their safety concept, which contains recommendations regarding the efficient use of safety technology.

Safety design

Once Pilz has worked with you to define the safety conceptthey will implement it within the safety design. In other words, Pilz will assign specific components to the planned measures and undertake the engineering for you. All the time, the focus is on your requirements. And Pilz will take into consideration the currently applicable standards.

System implementation

When the safety design is in place, Pilz will implement all the relevant safety systems in your plant. They plan and control the project, then supply and install the safety components, as well as the control and visualisation system. Then Pilz commissions the plant and trains your maintenance staff. So you no longer need to worry about the safety technology.

Safety validation

A safety validation shows that your plant facilities now have state-of-the-art safety technology and you are prepared in case of an emergency. After implementing their systems, Pilz examines and evaluates all safety measures, based on your safety requirements. In this way you meet the normative requirements. Pilz checks that the sensors and actuators are wired correctly and also check the safety-related software and hardware functions. Pilz provides you with a comprehensive test report, with recommendations on the measures required.
