STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 996 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of Process Design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which ISO 13849 improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 996 standard requirements:

  1. Are protective safety guard measures provided to guard the operator and other employees in the machine area from hazards created at the point of operation, pinch points, and rotating parts?

  2. What measures are taken in your organization to ensure that safety related Control Systems associated with a machine are adequately validated against the desired specifications?

  3. Have the contractors ensured that all workers understand and comply with the standard safety procedures for handling heavy machinery, vehicles and equipment?

  4. Is machinery installed and used in a safe manner to minimise danger to others, as are there any moving or rotating parts of machinery that require guarding?

  5. Are operators and maintenance workers adequately trained, familiar with the operation and set up of machinery and able to demonstrate safety features?

  6. When more than one person will be performing work on a machine at the same time, which methods can be used to ensure the safety of each employee?

  7. What are the procedures in your workplace if you come across a machine, equipment or tool that is faulty, broken or in need of maintenance?

  8. Are employees required to remove or bypass a guard or safety device during servicing and maintenance of any equipment or machinery?

  9. What hazardous tools, equipment and machinery must be inspected at regular intervals set by legislation and product manufacturers?

  10. Have you considered using Machine Learning to find patterns that can be indicators of risk – or potential opportunities?

Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose ISO 13849 projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in ISO 13849 and put Process Design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make ISO 13849 investments work better.

This ISO 13849 All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
