Formatted abstract
The EMERST design evaluation for equipment procurement process involves identifying priority tasks based on frequency and severity of the consequences of potential unwanted events; undertaking a task-based risk assessment of priority tasks in conjunction with site-based personnel; evaluating the effectiveness of control measures; and providing information about safe design features in a standardised format. This article describes Sandvik’s adaption of the process and illustrates its use for the assessment of an exploration drill rig. The process was found to provide a structured way to discuss hazards connected to maintenance and operability of the equipment with the customer and identify safety improvements.
