Incentive for defeating protective devices:
 App for Android und iOS

Machine manufacturers and operators are obliged to provide safe machinery. Machines offering a high incentive for defeating protective devices are not considered to be safe and shall not be operated. Therefore it is highly relevant to both, manufacturer and operator, to determine the incentive for defeating of a safeguard.

A method has been developed in order to evaluate the incentive for defeating protective devices. This procedure has been incorporated into the standard EN ISO 14119. It is now available as an App for use on smartphones and tablets running Android and on tablets running iOS. The app is free of charge.
