    CIRSMA provides a system of examining individual hazards to determine their severity, the need for access to the hazardous area, and the likelihood of a person avoiding harm should the hazardous motion occur. This concept is based on the risk assessment methodology as described in ISO-14121, ANSI B11.TR3, and EN1050. By considering individual hazardous areas rather than attempting to assess an entire machine cell as one hazardous area, suitable risk reduction methods can be assigned.

    In addition, the software includes a document management module. This feature will enable your company to prepare a long term plan and set target dates for the implementation of remedial measures. The program also provides your facility with the ability to track equipment or process modifications, and develop realistic safety policies that can help to ensure your viability. Also included in the program is a facility safety management system. This feature can help your company define what type of person should be allowed into the hazardous area, the hiring requirements for a specific task, and the corporate safety policy development requirements. CIRSMA can provide your company with the opportunity to properly document all of the steps that you have taken in exercising due diligence. This type of documentation is a valuable asset and should be available in the workplace.
