Solon Systems can carry out Puwer 98 surveys on your machines, and provide a report with costs for any remedial action required, to ensure that the machines meet current legislation.

  • Quick and efficient Risk Assessment
  • Hazard Identification
  • Risk Evaluation
  • Recommendations for control measures (a to-do list)
  • Full documentation

Brief surveys covering machine guarding stop controls and isolation are also available on request.
