Never Hire a Machine-Safety Company Without Asking These 10 Questions

There are many machine-safety companies out there claiming to offer turnkey services. But when you know what to ask them, you’ll find some have the capabilities to handle a complete machine safety project, while others only offer a partial solution. This can create the need for additional research and outsourcing for various aspects of the project. So how do you know when a machine safety company is the right one to partner with? Here are the 10 most important questions to ask when interviewing a potential machine-safety partner.

Are Machine-Safety Issues Keeping You Up at Night?

With downsizing efforts impacting every industry, the availability of in-house machine-safety expertise has declined. Still, as an employer, you bear the responsibility to provide a safe and compliant work environment for your employees. The stakes are high since machine-safety incidents can result in serious, if not fatal, injuries. The potential for machine-related injuries or regulatory-audit findings should always be at the forefront of your mind. You know your machinery needs to be both safe and compliant, but you’re just not sure how to get there.

Understanding machine safety requirements can be a complex undertaking. Plant machinery can also be unknowingly hazardous to your employees resulting in serious, if not fatal injuries. These tragic events can also create significant liability for your company.
