Justification of Safety
Justification of Safety – a document containing a risk analysis, as well as information from design, operational, technological documentation on the minimum necessary safety measures, accompanying machines and (or) equipment at all stages of the life cycle and supplemented by information on the results of risk assessment at the operational stage after overhaul.
Justification of the safety of machinery and equipment – a document containing an analysis of the risk of unforeseen situations and equipment breakdowns, as well as information on the minimum necessary measures to ensure safety during the operation of machinery and equipment.
On the territory of three countries, the Safety Justification for Machines and Equipment is developed on the basis of GOST R 54122-2010 “Safety of Machines and Equipment. Requirements for Safety Justification” containing requirements for the development of safety justifications for machinery and equipment.
According to article 2 of the technical regulation of the Customs Union “On the safety of machinery and equipment” (TR CU 010/2011 dated October 18, 2011 No. 823, entered into force on February 15, 2013) manufacturers, suppliers, operating organizations and consumers of the three countries of the Customs Union The Republic of Belarus, the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation must develop and (or) have a document “Justification of the safety of machinery and equipment.” The purpose of introducing a safety case for machinery and equipment is to ensure:
the efficiency of the equipment in production;
an appropriate level of safety for people, as well as the property of the organization.
Requirements for the development of a safety case for machinery and equipment
Safety justification is developed in accordance with the requirements of GOST R 54122-2010 “Safety of machinery and equipment. Requirements for safety justification” and it is possible to develop a safety justification in two versions:
Brief safety case – does not contain the results of measurements and tests, is declarative in nature, is used to confirm the compliance of products with the requirements of technical regulations.
A complete safety case – includes the results of all calculations and tests, contains a documented justification of the established safety measures, is used to carry out control and supervision procedures
