Welcome to our sesquicentennial newsletter! If you have read all 150 issues, congratulations and thank you.

Here in the UK it is difficult to escape the thorny subject of Brexit, but in this newsletter we stick to useful advice and avoid political rhetoric.

In addition, the HSE has a dedicated section on its website to assist organisations in their Brexit preparations.

Other items in this month’s newsletter include training courses, machinery safety, cobots, smart manufacturing, and numerous new products for machine builders and system integrators.
