World Class Safety Engineering Solutions

TEG Risk is a New Zealand owned and operated, safety engineering solution provider with extensive experience in ensuring compliance with New Zealand protocols and industry requirements.

TEG Risk is a world-class organisation specialising in machine safety and risk management.

Our team of machine safety engineering consultants provide completely independent risk assessment services for machinery and hazardous substances. We’ve worked with large government departments and leading manufacturers to  provide best practice advice and engineering design solutions to ensure your workplace is safe and compliant with all relevant regulations.

Through our work and experience, we have a deep understanding of the regulatory requirements specific to the New Zealand context, and have developed expertise in supporting departments and organisations to align their protocols with the requirements of AS4024 Safety of Machinery (series) and industry best practice.

To support our solution delivery, we’ve developed a mobile machine risk assessment app — The MinRisk App — the first of its kind in the Australasian market, supporting health and safety teams to automate their machine safety assessments with fewer errors, faster.

We offer a full spectrum of machine risk and safety engineering, and have the expertise to support your organisation to achieve its goals and minimise risks.

Machine Risk Assessments

TEG Risk carries out Machine Risk Assessments to help make your machinery and your workplace safer. We provide detailed reports to help stakeholders fully understand both the issues and best-practise solutions.

Our Machine Risk Assessments cover all mechanical, electrical and functional safety disciplines. Our experience and comprehensive methodology allow us to identify and evaluate risks that Health and Safety or non-specialist engineering personnel would overlook or underestimate.

We have extensive experience working across multiple sites simultaneously, and our team of highly skilled engineers use our machine risk assessment app — The MinRisk App — to assess a large number of machines in a short time on site. The MinRisk App also allows TEG Risk (and other App license holders) to produce highly informative reports with standard references, photos and budget costs. TEG Risk can also provide a variety of management reports that allow your organisation to start planning and prioritising the implementation work.

Our assessments are aligned to ISO 12100 and we can complete the assessments utilising a wide variety of methods including your own risk matrix.

Machine Safety – Training for Managers
This one-day onsite interactive training course provides machine safety training for managers in your organisation. It is customised to suit the machinery used in your operations.

Who is it for?
This training is ideal for organisations that have started their machine safety journey and know about “guarding” but are not experts yet. A knowledge of risk assessment — as it relates to machinery — is useful but not necessary. The training is typically undertaken by management teams with roles that can influence machine safety. This includes: Engineers, Health and Safety Managers, Operations Managers, those responsible for procurement, and Human Resource Managers.

It’s an opportunity to upskill these managers in a critical area of your business.

The training is ideal for engineers with good mechanical and electrical knowledge but who need to know about the tools to apply to make machinery safe and compliant. It will answer those questions you might have and will help those that make decisions relating to machinery risk.

Machine Safety – Overview Training
Two-hour onsite training course, or a one hour video presentation.
This machine safety awareness training focuses on the key engineering requirements of the machine safety standards (AS/NZS 4024:2014) and supporting standards.

We use our extensive experience of these safety standards to condense 900 pages of AS/NZS 4024 down into a short two-hour presentation highlighting the key things you need to know. You will leave this training session better able to identify machine safety issues and more prepared to fix them. Your solutions will be more appropriate to the needs of operation and maintenance, risks will be better addressed and ultimately you will see less rework of poor designs.

The training is designed for:

  • Engineers
  • Health & Safety personnel – e.g. representatives and operational staff.

This course is for those most closely involved with the machinery that may need to provide input or take action on any proposed machinery improvements.

Minimise Risk In Your Workshops

Too often we’re reminded of the dangers that workplaces can hold, and time and time again we learn that disastrous incidences could have been avoided with proper planning, assessment and controls. Protecting your workplace is not only important for machine handlers, as the financial implications of a workplace incident can be crippling. The recent prosecution of Otago Polytechnic after a carpentry student partly severed his finger (resulting in a landmark judgement) highlights the potential impact and risks to institutions.
