MRM Engineering was engaged by a local manufacturing company to complete the functional safety risk review of the tyre handler. The tyre handler is a hydraulically actuated machine used to support tyres when being removed from Heavy Mining Equipment. Each tyre can weigh as much as 15 tonnes.

MRM Engineering used Australian Standards AS/NZS61508 and AS/NZS62061 to assess the functional safety requirements of the equipment. A risk assessment was completed and a Functional Safety report completed for the project.
