The final step of the safety review process is validation.
Sentinel Machine Safety analysts will travel to the production line and perform a step-by-step analysis of safety hardware and features to ensure that it matches exactly with the intended functionality created during the Risk Mitigation process. This involves testing every possible machine state and ensuring that each expected outcome is met. AOPD devices will be individually validated, all emergency stop functions will be checked, and a final peer review will be conducted in order to provide proof of consensus from all involved parties.
Once the validation and safety review have been completed, Sentinel Machine Safety will create a bound document that contains all information from the Risk Assessment, Risk Mitigation, and Validation steps of the project, and serves as proof of ‘due diligence’ safety compliance. The final Safety Review Book will be delivered in both physical and PDF formats, so that it can be stored at the relevant process location, but also accessed remotely whenever necessary.
