Since the beginning of this year our colleague, Andreas Kirchner, has been your first point of contact for Product Safety.
Andreas started his professional career with an apprenticeship as an Industrial Mechanic, which he then completed with additional training, in order to become a State-Certified Technician (specialising in machine technology).
After holding various positions as a Design Engineer in technical product development and automotive engineering, he began working with us at kothes in October 2013.
In addition to the development of operating, maintenance and assembly instructions, he’s also become specialised in the preparation of risk assessments, in accordance with Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
In addition, Andreas conducts training courses on the subjects of “Creating Risk Assessments" and "Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC”, and he trains our customers in the use of DOCUFY Machine Safety, a special piece of software for creating risk assessments, in accordance with the current Machinery Directive.
If you have any questions about product safety, Andreas Kirchner would be happy to be your contact person.
