Rapid Alert System – Weekly Notification reports
Materials Processing Institute – A Teesside based Research and Innovation Centre serving organisations which work with materials, materials processing or energy. The Institute specialises in challenging processes, particularly those involving high temperatures, hostile environments and high specification materials.
The reason we do all of this work to ensure machines are safe, is so that people who go to work have a safe environment and go home at the end of the day to their families. For anyone who doesn’t think this is a good reason, go to the Louise Taggart website and see the results of not doing things properly – Michaels Story.
The Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC text is provided by the EU. The UK Government brought the Directive into UK law as the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008. There are some minor differences in text. Safe Machine Ltd. carried out a comparison of the text of the Essential Health and Safety Requirements. This can be downloaded below.
The differences are minor and can be considered not relevant.
