MPSA Services

The MPSA group has over 20 years of experience of creating turnkey machine safety solutions. Our mission is to reduce our customers’ manufacturing-related accidents by providing assistance with machinery and process hazard identification, classification and reduction.

Machine Hazard Identification

We provide two options for machine safety assessment. Our Machine Safety Surveys identify the visible and hidden hazards of your machines and processes. If needed, we will recommend full Risk Assessment. After uncovering areas in need of improvement, an implementation plan is put into place.

Engineering & Design

Our engineers can design a cost-effective and energy-efficient safeguarding system. We provide a documentation package that includes AutoCAD drawings and electrical schematics.

Turnkey Machine Guarding

MPSA can complete the entire machine guarding process by designing, building and installing the required solution; whether it is an integrated safety control or a complete turnkey safeguarding system. Once installed, we will perform a systematic validation procedure to verify that the risk is controlled.

Continuous Improvement

MPSA’s seminars can help you stay current on changes in industrial safety laws and guidelines. Our seminars focus on current machine guarding and control reliability safety standards, including ANSI, OSHA, NFPA, European norms and CE compliance.

The MPSA Difference

What separates MPSA from the rest? Well, it’s quite a lot.

Full Customization

With MPSA, your turnkey solution is tailored to your needs and machinery, not to the "out of the box" solutions the competition offers.

Custom designed machine guarding solutions can be specifically designed to fit your machine and operational needs. This also applies to our safety controls design with our wide selection of safety control components, control boxes and wiring options.  

Furthermore, MPSA provides customized, equipment-specific mechanical & electrical drawings, outlining all safety upgrades (versus generic vendor-specific drawings).

Understanding Your Requirements

We don't miss important details when designing safety systems. We conduct detailed and collaborative reviews of equipment with owners, operators and maintenance personnel. We will fully understand (and document) important functional requirements including access, operations, quality and productivity.

Machine Stop-time Analysis

Unlike the competition, we don't need to guess, estimate or hire-out to get your exact machine stop-time (which is important for properly installing safety light-curtains). MPSA has expertise in conducting machine stop-time analysis and controlling access to all types of hazardous energy sources, including pneumatic and hydraulic.

cGMP Compliance

We can provide cGMP compliant guarding designs and materials suitable for food, beverage and pharmaceutical operations.

Dedicated Project Managment

Clients are assigned a single point of contact throughout the entire MPSA process. MPSA is staffed with a full-time team of specialists, dedicated to turnkey machine safety solutions, so there isn't a need for subcontractors or secondary vendors. We excel in the management of large-scale projects, often involving multiple production lines in a number of different facilities.

Continuous Support

MPSA can provide post-installation support, including training, maintenance service and online spare parts ordering.

Safety Surveys & Risk Assessments

We can perform a Machine Safety Survey (1-2 hours) aligned with regulatory requirements and industry-consensus standards. 

If a more thorough analysis is required, we can perform a Machine Safety Risk Assessment (8+ hours) in accordance with the ANSI, ISO or RIA machine risk assessment guidelines. 

Reccomendation Report with Cost Estimate

After evaluating your machinery, we will provide a Recommendation Report identifying the scope and cost of necessary safety upgrades. Our clients appreciate this information for budgetary planning and approvals as it is hard to find with other companies.

Flexible Billing

Our clients appreciate our “pay as you go" approach to billing. This gives the maximimum impact to limited funding, while reducing the highest risks and compliance gaps. 

Client Approvals

Prior to any fabrication, our clients receive a fully-documented description of all safety upgrades for their approval. This minimizes design changes, installation delays and cost overruns.

Brand Versatility

As a division of Airline (an industrial component distributor), MPSA offers a greater selection of components than the competition.

By representing several leading brands of machine safety components, we're never limited to a single brand, so our client's safety solution isn't limited either.

Engineering Excellence

Unlike other machine safety companies, MPSA has their own dedicated engineering team. We can engineer new safety solutions and even “re-engineer” and document existing machine control systems. This is beneficial when the client's control functionality is unknown or their original schematics are not available.

Control System Validation

After the safety solution is installed, MPSA can conduct safety control system validations in accordance with ISO-13849.
