The Challenge

At the Twiflex factory in Bedford, rotating equipment clutch and braking assemblies are manufactured. An internal audit identified a need for DSEAR RA for the manufacturing processes and DSEAR RISK ASSESSMENTS were chosen in July 2017 as we could offer a quick turnaround to meet the auditor’s deadline.

The Solution provided

A review of the plant areas identified many areas within scope of DSEAR, such as the incoming gas metering area, storage, handling and use of flammable and compressed gases, storage handling and spraying of paints and thinners, generation of combustible light alloy and wood dusts.

Gap analysis for these areas resulted in recommendations for technical and organisational measures to bring any areas of concern into line with DSEAR and supporting topic specific standards. Additionally, assistance was provided for the specification for a new large parts spray-booth.
