Risk Assessments

Hazards --> Risks --> Dangers

Page 6: Product Safety Management. Protecting People + Profits.

Design FMEA

(Failure Mode Effects Analysis)

• Failure > Cause > Effects

• Occurrence X Severity X Detection = RPN

Page 7: Product Safety Management. Protecting People + Profits.

Risk Priority Number

• Extremely High (12 and over) – Design out the hazard.

• High (9 - 11) – Guard the hazard.

• Medium (5 - 8) – Labeling and Manual

• Low (1 - 4) – Manual

Page 8: Product Safety Management. Protecting People + Profits.

LS400 FMEA

• Failure Mode– Brake handle too close to frame

• Effects of Failure– Creates Pinch Point

• Causes of Failure– Designed w/o adequate clearance

Page 9: Product Safety Management. Protecting People + Profits.

LS400 FMEA (cont’d)

• Occurrence - 4

• Severity - 3

• Detection - 1

• RPN - 12– Design out the hazard.

Page 10: Product Safety Management. Protecting People + Profits.

Recommended Corrective Action

• Complete Redesign of Brake Handle– Eliminates pinch point.

Proper Label Format

• Signal Word– Danger, Warning, Caution

• Describe the hazard.

• Describe how to avoid the hazard.

• Consequences of not following instructions.

Cost for Product Labeling

• Maintain Inventory

• Translation

• Mislabeling in Production

• Fewer BOM Configurations

• Lower BOM Maintenance and Cost

• Liability
