Energy Isolation Does Not Stop at the End of the Wire
All too often, it is believed that controlling a machine's electrical power supply will mitigate the risk of accident or failure and render the machine safe.
However, when it comes to machine safety, electrons are just one of many forces and factors that need to be considered. Energy from compressed air, hydraulic pressure, and gravity are often overlooked. Donald Engineering offers not only the components to build a safety system, but the skills and expertise to apply them correctly as well. From risk assessment and risk mitigation, to control reliable containment of energy, we'll help you to properly design a safety system that protects your employees and your investment in order to ensure a lower total cost of ownership.
