Axelent has published a new Safety Book that guides the reader through the jungle of laws, regulations, EU directives and requirements relating to machinery safety. The book also explains the certifications and labels that are important to look out for.
The author, Matthias Schulz, is an independent machine safety consultant who is collaborating in a joint venture with Axelent AB, Sweden and Axelent GmbH, Germany. He has worked as a consultant within the engineering industry in Germany, Austria and Switzerland since the early 1990s. Schulz holds regular training courses in these countries and his courses and books have taught thousands of engineers about risk assessment, machine safety and technical documentation.
Matthias Schulz comments: "I find no real answers, merely references. This is more the rule than the exception when it comes to CE labelling, machine safety and everything thereof. For many people, reading weighty EU directives, conducting research into standards and carrying out risk assessments is like climbing a mountain. This is why we created Axelent Safety Book, a unique guide that answers the trickiest questions in a simple and comprehensible way.
"The book is different and we hope the reader will find it that way as well. It presents rules and regulations and illustrates principles and solutions with plenty of graphics. And best of all: you do not need to read the guide cover-to-cover, simply leaf through the book and begin where it attracts your attention."
The book has been translated into six languages: English, Spanish, German, French, Swedish and Dutch. The first 100 editions in each language are being packaged in a specially designed box that also contains a high-visibility vest, protective goggles and earplugs.
