Risk analysis (customer specific)

tec.nicum carries out technical safety inspections on existing machines, systems and product lines. Where adjustments are required to ensure the machines meet the working directives for health, safety and the environment and specific national legislation, tec.nicum can provide recommendations. 

For old or modified machines and systems, the tec.nicum engineers evaluate whether the current system or the modifications made will satisfy the applicable technical safety requirements. 

When evaluating machines from the operator’s perspective, tec.nicum proceeds as follows:

■ Analysis of existing documentation
■ Description of the machines and the processes
■ Checklist of mandatory criteria to be fulfilled


Technical documentation

The production and maintenance of technical documents is a major principle of machine and industrial safety. Modern 
quality processes are based on a seamless chain of documentation, which represents a key element of product and 
process safety, accident prevention and for clarifying liability issues in the event of an accident.

In order to make this process as efficient as possible, tec.nicum develops the necessary technical documentation based on the information provided by the customer. This can contain the following:

■ Checklists based on product standards
■ Risk analysis
■ Evaluation of proposed solutions
■ Electrical wiring diagrams including pneumatic and hydraulic processes where applicable
■ Electrical measurements
■ Design and validation of safety functions and systems
■ Technical data, tables, manuals and maintenance schedules
■ Drafting of a conformity recommendation. e. g. CE in accordance with the European Machinery Directive


Manufacturers wishing to sell machines in specific regions of the world are subject to the local regional trading and quality requirements and increasing requirements in terms of safety technology. In Europe, this is expressed in Machinery Directive 2006/42/EU. Evidence is provided by complying with EU conformity and the associated CE mark, which is considered a “passport for machines and systems“.
