EDEEP derives from the words Earth Moving Equipment Safety Round Table (EMESRT) Design Evaluation for EME Procurement. The EDEEP process was originally developed by EMESRT, which Sandvik has modified in order to best suit the company’s way of working and product offering.
The objective of the Sandvik EDEEP process is to look at the design of a piece of equipment and evaluate how potential safety risks can be mitigated. Areas that are addressed during the process could be operator visibility, ease of maintenance and operation and ease of equipment access, amongst others.
