Publication from SICK highlights six steps to a safe machine

With the imminent changes to the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations (29/12/2009), and the new standards which are superseding BS EN 954-1,  SICK (UK) is concerned that manufacturers, design and production engineers and safety managers will get overwhelmed by \'standards speak\' and lose sight of the main objectives - ensuring that all new machinery complies.

"We find that hands-on, practically focused guidance is the best way to get to grips with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and all its ramifications," points out Sebb Strutt. "That\'s why our new SICK publication Six Steps to a Safe Machine (Guidelines Safe Machinery) is an essential part of the safety working toolkit."

The Six Steps guide is free, and its 120 pages cover: a quick overview of laws, directives and standards; risk assessment; safe design; protective measures - the implementation of safety measures; residual risk; overall validation and placing the machine on the market. Appendices also include operator responsibility, useful links and a glossary."

 The Six Steps to a safe machine is also part of the practical package of information that attendees at the one-day SICK (UK) safety workshops come away with. The course introduces engineers to the two safety control standards, BS EN 13849 and BS EN 62061, and gives delegates a working understanding of their content and application.
