Machinery Guarding Assessments

A key step in making your workplace safer is to understand the risks. We don’t just “cover up the hazard” and walk away. 

During a UBS Guarding Assessment, we work with you to understand the key operational requirements of each piece of your equipment. Then we provide you with strategies to improve safety, maintain compliance, and increase productivity by incorporating end-user input into our design solutions.

Once our assessment is complete, we provide a clear, concise report detailing each piece of equipment, associated findings, any non-compliance or deficiency concerns, and potential options for mitigation.

All equipment findings are risk-ranked to enable our clients to prioritize their remediation strategies and to ensure that compliance is maintained, and risks are eliminated.

Full Service from Assessment to Installation

The ability of UBS to integrate services across the full life-cycle of every project enables us to work with our clients from the first assessment through to installation and turnover, maximizing efficiencies in cost, schedule, and quality.
