Machinery Safety, Compliance and Certification Consultancy Services:
Our company has been purposely set up as an ‘Independent’ provider of machinery safety and compliance services, without any formal ties to corporate manufacturers of machinery safety devices or components.

This independence allows us to focus on our clients ‘real needs’ without the distraction or complications of any single corporate component manufacturer financially backing the consultants work. It also allows us to recommend the right safety product, component or solution, for the right application, whilst still adhering to the ‘hierarchy of control’ and all the appropriate directives, regulations and standards for reducing the levels of risk from machinery.

Our operational consultants are TÜV Rhineland or TÜV SÜD Certified Functional Safety Engineers (or studying towards the TÜV Rhineland qualification), and also hold EU or national specialist accreditation and registration in their respective knowledge and technology fields such as Functional Safety, Electrical Engineering, Hydraulics and Pneumatics and they have knowledge of COSHH, LOLER, and DSEAR. We also have direct access to a Collaborative Robot Specialist Consultant.

In addition to this Les our MD and Principal Consultant, and our Consultant Jim Davis are qualified in the Risk Assessment and Management of Confined Spaces, and both recently became NEBOSH qualified in Accident Investigation. Les is also IOSH qualified for the Noise Assessment of machinery.

As well as holding these high level qualifications, our consultants also hold membership of professional bodies that are recognised worldwide such as ‘Technical’ membership of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (TechIOSH), ‘Specialist’ membership of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (SIIRSM), and membership of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (MIET). With this level of competency added to our many years experience in the field of machinery safety and compliance, we are able to pursue our aim to provide a professional single point of contact for wide range of machinery safety services, such as:

For ‘End User’ clients we offer services such as pre-delivery CE or UKCA Mark and standards compliance validation of machinery either before or during factory acceptance testing, formal machinery based risk assessments (which is not the same as a task based risk assessment), and PUWER assessments. We can support the CE or UKCA Marking of newly created ‘complex assemblies’, and the re-CE or new UKCA Marking of machinery that has been substantially modified or manufactured ‘in-house’, as any machines built ‘in-house’ for the end-user’s own internal use – still legally require a CE or UKCA mark…

For machine builders and OEM’s, our services include standards compliance support, initial machinery design support, post design assessment, and overall compliance assessment for the CE or UKCA Marking of new machinery, or re-CE or new UKCA Marking of machinery that they have substantially modified or refurbished under the scope of the Machinery Directive and the UK Supply of Machinery Regulations.

Please feel free to have a look around our website: www.astutemc.co.uk and see how we could help you keep your machinery and equipment safe and compliant, and more importantly, how we can help keep your people safe at work…. Why?... Because quite simply we believe that the most important thing you can do for your people is to ensure that they can carry out their work safely, and make sure they go home to their families every night in the same way they left in the morning... But remember - this is a legal requirement anyway...
