About the Risk Assessment: Offering Comprehensive Safety Analysis

Our certified safety consultants perform comprehensive machine risk assessments, thoroughly evaluating hazards, their severity, exposure, and likelihood. They cover all aspects of our Machine Risk Assessment service, ensuring a meticulous and detailed analysis.

A certified safety consultant conducts a thorough safety risk assessment to evaluate hazards, considering their severity, exposure, and probability. Using facility input, MPSA rates the frequency, severity, and avoidability of each risk. A decision tree then determines the absolute risk of the machine (per ANSI-B11) or each safety function (per ISO 13849).


The consultant identifies hazard points under all potential machine use conditions and assesses the probability of injury, severity, and worker exposure. They communicate safety risk findings throughout the process and collaborate to prioritize solutions for the most critical safety risks.

MPSA's Risk Assessment Will:

  • Identify Points of Hazard during all potential conditions of machine use.
  • Evaluate the Probability of Injury, Severity Level, and the actual or potential exposure of all workers.
  • Communicate Safety Risk Findings throughout the entire process.
  • Prioritize Solutions for the most severe safety risks.

Risk Prioritization Matrix

By estimating the length of exposure to the hazard and assessing the worst injury possible, the risk prioritization matrix can be used to determine the level of threat from each hazard that has been identified. Prioritizing hazards can prepare you to correct the most dangerous situations first and make plans to correct lower-ranking hazards in the future.

Rigorous and Detailed Evaluation

The Machine Safety Risk Assement (with detailed scope) evaluates:

  • In-Depth Evaluation covering approximately one day per machine, including all routine tasks such as operation, setup, adjustments, retooling, and maintenance.


  • Rigorous Compliance conforming to ISO-12100, ANSI B11.0, and RIA TR 15 risk assessment standards, meeting OSHA requirements. 


  • Inclusive Engagement involving all impacted parties including machine operators, mechanics, cleaners, facility automation/instrumentation, and EHS teams.


  • Document & Training Assessment where we will review and evaluate all equipment usage documentation, including equipment and training manuals and maintenance logs. We will also examine the process used to determine operator training, outlining evaluations. 
  • Control Reliability Assessment to identify the non-mechanical hazards that affect the control reliability of the machine. Control reliability and non-mechanical risks pertain to the electrical, pneumatic, and hydraulic components and circuits and their operations

  • Procedural Assessment, where we'll review and evaluate the methods and procedures used in the processing, use, handling, or storage of materials, tools, and substances used in your application.
