Why Quad Plus?

Simply complying with OSHA standards can still leave you legally vulnerable. Quad Plus has extensive experience with OSHA regulations and ANSI safety standards and our Safety Review will show due diligence on your part and could serve as an important element of a legal defense in the unfortunate event of a mishap. We provide much more than industrial safety; we offer all the services in the system integration lifecycle to our local and global customers. Quad Plus is a trusted provider of power services, system integration, commissioning, repair/service, and industrial safety.

What We Do

reduce risk to industrial system operators

Machine Risk Assessment

Prevent future problems with a safety review that can be performed before upgrades, for new line installations, before retrofits, or after accidents. We will work closely with the customer and create a list of prioritized hazards to be remedied in order to reduce risk to operators.

minimize risk for your industrial manufacturing equipment and your operators

Risk Mitigation

We will work with you to develop a specific plan for your automatic protection systems. A plan that minimizes the risk of likely human errors, hardware failures, and environmental and operating stresses. While, also ensuring, that productivity is not negatively impacted by safety.

machine safety consulting with risk audits

Safety Validation

After commissioning, we perform testing and validation audits including sign off and lockdown of safety PLCs to prevent unauthorized programming changes, ensuring that the machine continues to run in a safe manner.

review potential risks that can impact manufacturing productivity

Risk Assessment

We will collaborate with you to form a Peer Risk Assessment Team. This group, including equipment operators, is established to provide a diverse team that can review specific hazards. They will assign a required Safety Integrity Level (SIL) to score each of these areas, so that the hazards can be correctly mitigated.

The result is solutions that work for you and your team; we strive to ensure that safety never negatively impacts productivity. This Peer Risk Assessment Team will compile a document that will serve as a roadmap for the rest of the Risk Mitigation process.

Risk Mitigation

Quad Plus will work with you and your team to develop a specific action plan to minimize operator safety risks for you and your team. We will create hazard maps to identify areas of concern, create risk mitigation strategies for each identified hazard, and assist in developing muting zones to aid in increasing productivity. We then generate truth tables and functional descriptions to clearly define the intended functionality of each piece of safety hardware. This will help the project integrator with correctly programming the safety PLC to ensure that the safety hardware is both programmed and utilized properly.

Proper use of engineered safety control measures can even allow for the replacement of LOTO procedures with muting zones, allowing more streamlined work practices in addition to increased safety. The system performance and specific safety strategies are then approved by you, the client.

Safety Validation

Our team will travel to the production line and perform a step-by-step validation of hardware and functional safety. Validation will ensure that the intended performance matches what was decided upon during the Risk Mitigation process. This involves physically testing machine state and ensuring that the expected outcomes are observed. If not, the process is started over until all points pass validation. AOPDs (active optoelectronic protective devices), such as safety light curtains, will be individually validated, all emergency stop functions will be checked, and a final peer review will be conducted to provide proof of consensus from all involved parties.
