Machine Safety Risk Assessments

Machine risk assessments are our specialty. TEG Risk was founded on the premise that New Zealand needed a team of high-level specialists to assess the most complex of machine safety problems. Through the assessment of over 5,000 assets across New Zealand and internationally, we have built a reputation for developing practical, well-engineered solutions to difficult, long-standing machine safety problems.

We carry out site-wide summary machine risk assessments on all machinery, taking into account mechanical, electrical and functional safety. We use our Machine Risk Assessment App (TEGRA) to make this process efficient and cost effective, producing highly detailed and accurate reports which make your next steps clear. Our reports include risk registers, which also clarify urgency and priority of risks, along with classified remedial works registers.

Machine risk assessments

We carry out site-wide summary machine risk assessments on legacy/existing equipment. We use our own iPad app (TEGRA) to make this process efficient and cost effective but also to produce narrative and data-based reports, such as risk registers and classified (mechanical, electrical, functional safety) remedial works registers.

We have experience completing these assessments across multiple sites within Australia and New Zealand and have had single assignments involving thousands of assets.

Our detailed, team-based machine risk assessments are typically used prior to carrying out a safety upgrade to a legacy machine where stakeholder engagement and sign-off is key.

We have a reputation for developing practical solutions to difficult, long-standing machine safety problems that have avoided the costly replacement of non-compliant equipment.

We’re always looking at better, more efficient ways to operate to benefit our clients, which is why we developed TEGRA, our risk assessment app. This clever tool makes it easy and efficient to collect information, photos and generate reports. Find out more about TEGRA here.


Scoping and specification

We produce detailed specification/design and scope of works documents for both new equipment, and for upgrading existing machinery, to the latest international and client internal safety requirements to assist with tendering or project delivery.

Our speciality is challenging equipment for which there is no OEM or market-available solution and designs have to be developed from scratch. In these instances, TEG can prepare the full detailed Safety Requirements Specifications for the system integrators to build to.

Our services in this area ensure a smooth implementation of legacy equipment safety upgrades.


We provide full and independent validation on upgraded and OEM equipment. This includes the validation of machine safety to client internal requirements, the validation of safety concepts to ISO 12100, the validation of mechanical aspects e.g. to ISO 13857, the validation of functional safety elements, including safety controller software to ISO 13849.
