What machinery safety consulting services does Megalab offer?

Risk Assessment

The Machinery Directive (EN 2006/42/EC) requires a documented risk assessment for all machines. Following EN ISO 12100-1, Our team offers a comprehensive risk assessment service for many types of machinery and industries. For manufacturers who have already conducted and documented a risk assessment, they can opt to use this assessment and save costs as the Directive allows for self-declaration and preparation of the required documentation.

Evaluation and Testing to Harmonized Standards

In order to guarantee compliance with the Machinery Directive, we assess the equipment against applicable harmonized standards published in the Official Journal of the EU. During our engineering evaluation process, we review the machinery to the relevant requirements of the identified standards. This ensures that all essential health and safety requirements are considered and addressed as applicable.
