Safexpert Modul


Check Office documents for relevance with standards at the touch of a button.

The Safexpert NormAnalyzer checks your Word, PowerPoint and Excel files for relevance with harmonized European standards. This supports you, for example, in these areas:

  • Risk assessments documented in Word or Excel are checked for their relevance with harmonized European standards.
  • You avoid outdated content in presentation slides.
  • Work instructions, checklists or other templates are subjected to an update check before each application.
  • Persons responsible for updating certain templates are automatically informed by e-mail if standards referred to change.

This will contribute to error prevention and significantly support your quality management!
The application is very simple and therefore possible without software training!

The update check is as simple as this

This screen shows, for example, an excerpt of a risk assessment in Excel file format:

The function "Insert source data" inserts references to certain sections of a standard into the Excel file. To search for the appropriate standard use Safexpert NormManager.

For the update checks, simply click on "Check source information for relevance". In a few seconds, the check result is displayed in a clearly arranged list.

Check all files for relevance at the same time

To quickly perform an update check for all Word, PowerPoint and Excel files stored on a hard disk, directory or network path for updates, use the stand-alone analysis program of the Safexpert NormAnalyzer.

To start the check simply click on "Start check".

The result is collected and clearly displayed:

This figure shows which cross-references to sections of the standard are still up to date and which are not. Of course, the usual filter functions are available here to make the result even clearer.

A click on "Send result by e-mail" informs the person responsible for updating the document if a section of the standard has changed. Of course, the competence can be changed flexibly. This prevents people from being informed about changes in which they are not (any longer) interested. An unnecessary flood of information is avoided!
