  • Save time and effort: Purchase frequently required checklists.

Creating risk assessments faster

Several free templates support you in carrying out the risk assessment in a legally compliant and efficient manner.

Systematics and standardisation through hazards lists

Have you considered all hazards in the risk assessment? Due to the large number of hazards and hazard events, it is advisable to carry out the risk assessment on the basis of a standardised hazards list.

Safexpert supports users with a hazards list based on EN ISO 12100, which means that designers are less stressed about forgetting important points and the risk assessment is performed more quickly.

Particularly valuable: hazards are provided with so-called "Global Safexpert Identifiers" in Safexpert. This allows us to offer conversion routines in the event of changes to standards that convert existing risk assessments within seconds - activities that would take hours or days to perform manually!

Included in packages: Safexpert risk assessment, Basic, Compact, Professional - to the package overview

Which user activities do you need to consider in the risk assessment?

The standard for risk assessment, EN ISO 12100, requires that when building machines"all the phases of its life cycle" are taken into account. As with hazards, it is advisable not to start from scratch, but to start on the basis of a standardised, predefined template.

Safexpert therefore comes with the list of phases of the machinery life from EN ISO 12100 as standard. Of course, you can customise this list to suit the needs of your company.

Included in packages: Safexpert risk assessment, Basic, Compact, Professional - to the package overview

Relevant standards - ready to hand exactly where you need them

Standards can significantly increase the efficiency of design and risk assessment. However, this is only possible if information can be found and accessed by design engineers as quickly as possible.

Safexpert uses so-called "cross-reference lists" to enable access to relevant information during the design and especially during the risk assessment. These are standard references that are displayed in a sidebar for the risk assessment.

To avoid a flood of information, however, only the information that fits the respective work context is displayed, e.g. the standard on electrical safety (EN 60204-1) is displayed when hazards are processed in connection with electrical hazards.

This allocation saves design engineers valuable time and helps them to make better safety-related decisions.

Notes:

  • The delivery of various cross-reference lists to general standards (type B standards) is free of charge from the Safexpert Basic package onwards.
  • As some companies already have subscriptions to standards, access to the full texts is only possible if the corresponding standards or standards packages (see below) are licensed. This ensures that you do not pay for the standards twice but still benefit from the advantages of the cross-reference lists.
  • Of course, you can also create cross-reference lists yourself and customise the system to suit your needs.
  • With Safexpert 9.1 we have extended the system of cross-references. Details can be found in the section Requirement lists.

Access to standardised pictograms + report for checking

Safexpert supports you with an individually expandable database of standardised pictograms. This allows you to select the appropriate pictograms during the risk assessment, e.g. to draw users' attention to residual risks or necessary protective equipment.

You can use corresponding reports to create checklists that you or your colleagues can use to check whether all pictograms have actually been placed in the correct position.

Included in packages: Safexpert Compact, Professional - to the package overview

Operating instructions templates + Instructions-Assistant

Do not start the operating instructions from scratch! The operating instructions template supplied (based on the important basic standard for instructions, EN IEC/IEEE 82079-1) provides you with a predefined structure and important general information.

The template unfolds its full potential in conjunction with the Instructions-Assistant. This allows you to immediately assign information on residual risks that you identify in the risk assessment to the correct chapters and thus create operating instructions more quickly.

If you are already using editing systems, a convenient report will help you to see which information should not be missing in the operating instructions. If you use Schema ST4 - Safexpert supports you with an interface to the editing system.

Product compliance process
Faster and with legal certainty for CE

To guide you step by step through the CE process, we have developed the CE Guides in accordance with the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC), Machinery Regulation (2023/1230) and Low Voltage Directive (2014/35/EU).

These software modules map the respective regulatory process. Part of the process is also the creation of various documents. Safexpert also supports you here with templates for the respective regulations.

What must be included in the technical files?


The technical files serve as proof that the delivered product complies with the legal requirements. In the event of a justified request, these must be handed over to the market surveillance authorities or are important evidence in legal proceedings.

Safexpert's "Checklists of technical files" help you not to forget any important points and to collect all relevant information centrally in one place so that you can find it quickly if necessary.

Of course, you can also create your own checklists and customise them to your needs. For example, if additional documents are required on the basis of product-specific standards relevant to you or due to contracts with customers, you can customise the system and still achieve standardisation in your processes!

New from Safexpert 9.1: Requirement lists


With Safexpert 9.1, we have expanded the cross-referencing system. So-called requirement lists are now available in the CE Guide in accordance with the Machinery Regulation. These offer all the above-mentioned advantages of the cross-reference lists (normative assistance on the spot) and also enable individual requirements to be processed at project level.

This means that you now have the option of mapping any documents in requirements lists in order to document centrally in the project which requirements (e.g. from standards, laws or contracts) you have fulfilled.

Tip: You can convert existing cross-reference lists (which you may have created yourself) into request lists with just one click, allowing you to continue working seamlessly with the extended functions.

Included in packages: the list of requirements according to Annex III of the new EU Machinery Regulation 2023/1230 is included in: Safexpert Basic, Compact, Professional - to the package overview

Product-specific standards directly available and ready to hand in Safexpert: in cooperation with our partner Austrian Standards, we can provide you with European standards (ENs) as a national implementation in ÖNORM format in Safexpert. Contact us here for your standards enquiry!

Do you already have standards? That's why a standards package still pays off and amortises quickly

  • The standards contain link destinations manually entered by our data management experts. These link destinations are used to open the appropriate standards sections from the risk assessment by double-clicking on a cross-reference directly at the relevant point. This eliminates the need for time-consuming scrolling through standards. 
  • The full-text search is carried out across all standards contained in the company favourites. This makes it easier to find specific solutions. Your collection of standards thus becomes an optimal and valuable reference work.

Data packages

The Safexpert data packages contain the bibliographical data of the standards, such as standard number, issue date, predecessor and successor document, withdrawal date, date of cessation of presumption of conformity, etc. You use this data to search for standards. Safexpert also uses this data as a reference for extensive update checks and analysis functions in your project documentation!

Document structures

Document structures contain a structured list of all sections of a standard or other document.

IBF maintains the structure as well as the predecessor-successor relationship of sections (!) for a large number of relevant documents.

This has several advantages for Safexpert users:

  • In combination with the "Change Assistant" feature of the "Risk Assessment" module, you are not only informed about changes to standards, but can also see directly in your projects which sections have changed and can replace them directly with the successor. With just one click, you can open the old and new standards in parallel and compare the difference. 
    In the StandardsManager, you can call up the interactive "Document comparison" and conveniently compare the structure of the old and new standard in an interactive comparison.

Available document structures:

  • As an ideal supplement to the "Machine Safety" and "Machine Safety Plus" standards packages, we also offer document structure packages for the standards contained therein. 
  • Document structures are also available for various individual standards. Please refer to our price list.

Carry out checks efficiently

In the area of industrial product compliance, it is often necessary to carry out tests and approvals (e.g. with regard to electrical safety).

Other examples include the purchase of parts, incomplete machines or devices or the acceptance of finished products, e.g. during internal final inspections as part of QM processes.

Checkpoint libraries form the data basis for the CheckManager module. Standardised checklists allow you to standardise your inspection processes and thus increase inspection quality.

You have the choice between two variants:

The ability to maintain predecessor-successor relationships allows you to keep track of changes to test requirements (e.g. due to changed requirements in agile projects, changed standard or regulatory requirements, etc.) and saves you tedious manual activities.

You can see which checkpoint libraries are available in our price list.

Tip: If a library relevant to you is not available - but you would still like to outsource the creation - feel free to contact us! We will check the creation of a library for you by an expert from our network.
