Machine Safety & Guarding

Machines can present a variety of hazards, both in normal operation and when things go wrong. Protecting the operator, and ensuring the machine runs efficiently is vital.

From conveyors to compactors, and packaging machines to palletisers there are different ways to ensure that any entry points to the working machinery are guarded – either physically or using ‘optical guarding’.
In most cases the type of machine safety required is governed by different EN ISO standards, which together help machinery manufacturers and end users meet the requirements of the Machinery Safety Directive.
