HITE Engineering provides engineering services to pharmaceutical companies. Much of the equipment is European with CE marking, but many of these machines do not meet North American safety standards or even European standards because the CE marking system is essentially a ‘self-marking’ process which is sometimes abused or simply misunderstood by the manufacturer.
Guarding for pharmaceutical equipment can be very challenging due to the competing interests of safety, productivity and GMP. There are multiple hazards in the pharmaceutical industry including fire, explosion, hygiene, dust control and machine guarding.
