All needed safety engineering services at your disposal

Assessing potential risks and safety hazards requires in-depth knowledge in technology and work procedures. Applying market-area specific legislation, directives and standards and interpreting them in practice can be a daunting task: Simply internalizing more than 30 EU directives is close to impossible for a machine manufacturer, even though the management of the company is responsible for their implementationAn external expert who understands not only the legislation and regulatory requirements, but also the interdependencies between a device’s mechanics and technology, can be of great help.

Etteplan’s safety engineers have a years of experience in applying continent, area or local level standards. We develop our expertise continuously and we use the most up-to-date information and competence in matters concerning the safety of machinery and facilities alike.


We can help you grow your maintenance business

For many of our customers, servicing and maintenance business is a key source of growth. When a fault occurs in a machine or when even a small change is made (rebuild project), this often impacts the safety of the device.

If the safety risks resulting from changes made to machinery are not assessed, this can lead to hazardous situations in the future. Etteplan’s safety experts review how the changes made to your device impact safety as a whole and help to meet the necessary regulatory requirements.
