Services/Consulting

PRI offers a menu of services to complement our complete line of press room equipment. Our Application Engineers can help you determine what equipment you need and how to implement it safely in compliance with OSHA and ANSI standards.

OSHA Compliance Surveys

Power Press and Press Brake safety inspections to determine OSHA/ANSI compliance and determine what corrections are required. Our inspection checks for compliance with OSHA 1910.217 and ANSI B11.1 with specific emphasis on point of operation guarding and control reliability. We typically provide this service on a complimentary basis to our customers located in: PA, OH, WV, KY, TN, MS, and AL. Service is available in other locations on a consultative fee basis.

Machine and perimeter guarding analysis. We can recommend cost effective and productive solutions for area guarding problems such as robotic work cells and coil feeding lines.

Stop time measurements – establish safe distance for two hand controls and presence sensing devices. We measure actual machine stop time then calculate safety distance using OSHA and or ANSI formulas.

Risk analysis – machine inspection to identify various risks/exposures, identify injury potential, exposure frequency, identify risk category, and potential risk mitigation per ANSI B11.TR3-standards.
