The use of machinery is dominant in the vast majority of industries. But while there’s no arguing that machinery can greatly increase efficiency and ease, it can also pose a significant threat of injury. Every day, all over the globe, people are injured and killed in accidents involving machinery. Accidents that could have been prevented, had the proper precautionary measures been taken.

This whitepaper looks at the measures required to conform to the directive and discusses the two recognised standards for handling functional safety of machinery.
