Practical Guide to Machinery Safety at Drives & ControlsTÜV SÜD is using Drives & Controls 2016 to promote the 5th Edition of its Practical Guide to Machinery Safety, which is available as a free download.

This machine safety guide has been developed in response to the common hazards and issues that TÜV SÜD consultants regularly observe when visiting manufacturing sites.

The guide introduces machinery safety, providing guidance on the best route to compliance, including topics such as:

  • The legislative framework
  • Implementing risk assessments
  • Four steps to CE marking
  • Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
  • Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER)

Neil Dyson, Business Line Manager for Machinery Safety at TÜV SÜD Product Service, says: “While machinery end-users think they have safety compliance covered, our site visits often prove otherwise. Safety requirements go much further than the Machinery Directive, and a complex series of interrelated standards means that even the most astute can still get things wrong. Our guide will help them to ensure that they are on the right path to compliance as machinery safety is one of the most significant issues facing every manufacturing company in Europe today.”
