Machine safety and workplace protection

Machine safety is the basis for safe cooperation between man and machine – and at the same time a complex field of tasks. This is because a large number of standards and guidelines have to be taken into account. These include the Machinery Directive and its associated standards, the Low Voltage and EMC Directives, directives and standards that apply when exporting outside the EU, and the regulations that apply when modernising and converting existing machinery.


This list is by no means exhaustive, and these regulations are constantly being revised and amended. The technical planning and implementation of safety solutions are also a challenge, especially if they are to contribute to increasing plant availability and production efficiency.


In all these questions and tasks, the experts at tec.nicum advise and accompany their customers and clients - with training, on-site consulting, documentation and planning, but also with support in implementation, e.g. in the installation of protective devices and safety systems.


tec.nicum is the Schmersal Group’s service division and comprises a global consultancy network of TÜV Rheinland-certified Functional Safety Engineers and Machinery CE Experts.  Services can be called upon around the world.  tec.nicum’s core philosophy is to offer advice that is independent of manufacturers and as objective as possible.


The aim is to develop and implement the objectively best possible safety solution for the individual application – true to the slogan: excellence in safety.
