Suppliers and manufacturers of industrial machinery have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of their products, irrespective of whether it is only used in-house or placed on the market.
To give you confidence that your machinery is safe, TUV SUD is running a series of half-day Machinery Safety Workshops where attendees will gain an understanding of the actions that must be taken to comply with the law, as well as an understanding of the individual regulations and how to comply with them.
The workshops cover placing equipment on the market, not only in the EU through CE marking but also in the UK after Brexit. To optimise market access, it is important to ensure products meet all national and international regulatory and technical requirements.
Here in the UK, the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) are applied by end users to ensure both old and new equipment can be used safely; this also includes equipment used by manufacturers to produce a finished component or product. PUWER is a continual process, as machines should be periodically reviewed and, where necessary, upgraded.
There are dangerous overlapping areas between PUWER and what would be classed as 'new machinery' after significant changes have been made.
Join TUV SUD at one of the workshops to see that machinery safety does not need to be complicated! Dates and venues for 2019 are as follows:
