SafeStart Systems LLC is a private investor held U.S based research, product development & manufacturing company founded in 2003. Its product line centers on its patented SafetyGate™ technology; designed to prevent hazardous electrical restarts in industrial machinery, medical apparatus, appliances, power tools, and commercial and residential buildings. Most notably SafeStart Systems has successfully patented and markets a line of SafetyGate retrofit products, designed to provide users with the ability to instantly install a restart prevention “safety update” to the over 1.3B power tools and appliances currently in use worldwide. SafeStart Systems installations include the most recognized names in technology suppliers including those in Aerospace, Military, Education, Government, Medicine and Private industry.
NIOSH / OSHA, CSA and NFPA all mandate restart protection for large machinery. Smaller machines along with handheld power tools and appliances have previously been under voluntary compliance as a result of safety restart protection technology physical size and cost limitations. The SafetyGate circuitry though its extreme miniaturization and low cost has revolutionized this liability as evidenced by the growing number of OSHA inspection reports mandating restart protection on small machines and hand held tools. SafeStart Systems SafetyGate technology allows users and OEM’s the ability to simply and cost effectively implement a critical safety feature without the use of expensive and bulky electro-magnetic devices, previously the industry standard. Restart protection can now be incorporated into an appliance or power tool’s power plug, creating a wealth of efficiency options for the OEM manufacturing process.
The FDA has mandated under IEC 60601-1 v.3 that “ME EQUIPMENT shall be so designed that an interruption and restoration of the power supply shall not result in a HAZARDOUS SITUATION other than interruption of its intended function”. This mandate has prompted the development and release of our new SafetyGate Pro-Med OEM™ and SafetyGate Industrial-Med OEM™ products; creating high quality, low-cost miniaturized compliance solutions for ME Original Equipment Manufacturers.
Further application development continues with designs for power suppliers of residential and industrial buildings and systems including large manufacturing, Military applications, chemical-toxic material plants, Government housing facilities and food preparation sites. The fully scalable SafetyGate circuitry has been recognized as a viable safety solution in preventing thousands of injuries and millions of dollars in property damage as a result of unintended and unannounced power restarts. Simple installation of sensor circuitry by electricity meter manufacturers allow for monitored power restriction after provider restoration. The empowerment of customers to designate power restoration timelines equates to measurable risk management cost reductions on the part of electricity suppliers, facility owners and public utilities.
SafeStart Systems LLC manufactures products in the U.S. under UL, CUL & CE standards for distribution worldwide.
