What We Do

Our Passion – Fusing innovation and knowledge to simplify the complex

This mission has led Plant Assessor to be the world’s largest and most widely used plant risk assessment, pre-operation, document management and information sharing system for plant & machinery.

Our software & Your success:

Plant Assessor is the world’s largest plant & equipment safety & information sharing platform.


It’s used by more than 1,000 organisations throughout Australia and New Zealand to help capture and share machinery information and ensure equipment is safe for use and accompanied by the right safety information.


Our industry leading, cloud-based platform contains details of over 100,000+ makes and models of plant & equipment and has been trusted by the biggest names in plant & equipment to help them manage safety compliance on machinery since 2004.


Plant Assessor’s smart machinery risk assessment software is the core of the solution suite. This technology virtually eliminates the common errors associated with the conduct of machinery risk assessments whilst dramatically improving productivity, thoroughness and assessment speed.  For more information on how, see Using Plant Assessor.


Being make and model specific, Plant Assessor is non-generic and contains a massive amount of intellectual property related to your machinery, from machine specifications to detailed pre-start checks, records and comprehensive interactive risk surveys and risk assessment reports.


Whereas other systems give you an empty digital filing cabinet and ask you to fill it with your machinery safety information, Plant Assessor helps you create comprehensive, thorough and shareable machinery condition and safety information quickly and easily.


Plant Assessor’s document library allows clients to upload and share information related to companies and contractors, machinery, sites and operators – this allows seamless sharing of selective and comprehensive digital information to and from contractors and employees, at the place where that information is most valuable.


Plant Assessor’s flexible access model allows users to choose what features they wish to use and only pay for what is valuable to them.  Plant Assessor feature levels include:


Free:       Digital Pre-start checks, unlimited machines & users

Plus:       Free features plus document library & management, bring your own risk assessment, Plant Assessor machine specific SOPs

Edge:      Plus features and Plant Assessor risk assessments, free sharing (share your machine information with another Plant Assessor user)

Using Plant Assessor to Conduct Machinery Risk Assessments


The plant & equipment risk assessment process has traditionally been highly subjective and requires unwavering consistency and a deep understanding of machinery and safety legislation.


Consequently, plant risk assessments are often inconsistent, incomplete and often do not apply the correct controls to manage the risk of each hazard identified. They can also take many hours to complete.


Plant Assessor simplifies and speeds up this process. Our technical team have conducted tens of thousands of plant risk assessments, the results of which are embedded in our smart software.


Plant Assessor has already completed a comprehensive tedious hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control process for the machines in the system, therefore an inspector using Plant Assessor is essentially looking for the presence of the relevant controls (treatments) required for the machine in question.


The only pre-requisites for a user of Plant Assessor are:


  1. Core knowledge about the item of plant or equipment they are assessing
  2. Reasonable comprehension skills to read and answer yes/no style questions

Get in touch and let us show you how Plant Assessor can help you take control of your plant & equipment safety! Fill out the contact form below.

We never set out to be a safety label supplier, but as Plant Assessor assists users identify labelling deficiencies on tens of thousands of machines a year, we felt obliged to provide tailored and top quality safety labels for Plant Assessor users and others in the machinery industry.


You can order safety labels from within Plant Assessor, or visit our secure online store and purchase from our extensive range of individual labels and machine label kits.  Postage is intentionally kept low, with Express Post options for urgent situations.


Professional Services – Inspection and Label Application

As part of our professional services suite, we also provide an “assess and label” service option for clients who wish us to inspect their equipment, produce risk assessments and rectify labelling deficiencies at the same time.  This is very convenient for larger plant owners and project mobilisation.


We have tried a few different materials over the years and source materials and utilise production processes that result in our labels being both highly durable and affordable.
