Safety Certification

We have been involved in guillotine Safety since the late 1970s, in both the inspection and modification of guillotine safety equipment, and in the supply of new safety equipment for retro-fitting to older machines.

As you are probably aware, in order for Users to fulfil their duties under the UK Health Safety regulations, guillotines should be inspected by competent engineers every six months, if this work is carried out you can be assured that you have taken a considerable step towards fulfilling your obligations under the following:

  • The Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations.
  • The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations.
  • The Provision and Use of Work Equipment 1998 (PUWER 98).
  • The Requirements of Section 2, sub-section 2a, of the Health and Safety at Work Act.

We offer a range of service contracts for the inspection of guillotine safety systems, which vary according to Users needs, from the minimum required safety inspection and testing, which would be carried out by one technician taking approximately two hours, to a comprehensive maintenance, repair, testing and inspection schedule carried out by two technicians taking approximately six hours.

Regardless of which level of service you decide to adopt, on completion of our visit we will issue you with a Safety Certificate, and thereafter send you a report on our technicians findings.

In today's increasingly litigious climate, why not take the worry out of safety issue compliance? We can provide a comprehensive consultancy to address these matters.

Should you have any doubts or worries over guillotine safety, feel free to contact our Safety consultant, Mr Peter Borsos*, who will be able to offer you advice.

For more information on the type and scope of the Service Schemes we provide please view the information contained under the heading "Services" sub section "Scheduled Servicing"
