Guidance for managing machinery safety risks and risk management

15 September 2010

Understanding the legislation, Directives and machinery safety standards that apply to machinery and work equipment can be a difficult task. If your organisation uses or supplies machinery as part of its operations, you will need a clear understanding of what is required for legal compliance, whilst employers and staff in any field of work must familiarise themselves with their rights and duties in the workplace under new legislation.

Combining all the relevant information needed to manage the risks associated with machinery and work equipment, the book from BSI entitled ‘Risk management of machinery and work equipment’ is an invaluable guide. Machine builders and users, whether UK-based or exporting machinery into the UK market, will find it a must-have reference, as will employers and managers looking for guidance on their health and safety responsibilities.

This book is an essential guide for anyone concerned with machinery safety and risk management, and especially within industries with higher risk profiles. It can help you manage risk in the workplace by providing: Answers to the most frequently asked machinery safety questions; practical health and safety solutions in a simple and straightforward format; a common sense approach on how to meet the stringent legal requirements and guidance in line with the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008 (implementing Directive 2006/42/EC), in force from December 2009.

Illustrated with real-life case studies, the book examines common queries arising from the various standards, regulations and best practices relating to the safe design and use of work equipment in industry.
