In case you missed it, the most popular item in last
month's newsletter was the new mCom+
machinery safety risk assessment management system
from TUV SUD Product Service. This helps users meet
their obligations relating to both the Machinery
Directive and PUWER. Simple checklists ensure that no
vital steps are missed, and a final report provides a
prioritised action list for areas of non-compliance.
This issue of the newsletter has an extended 'Events
and courses' section, in addition to the usual spread
of industry news and products for machine builders. If
you scroll down, you will also see that our 'useful
resource' item is back.
