The latest edition of ‘A practical guide to machinery safety’, sponsored by Laidler Associates, part of the machinery division of TÜV SÜD Product Service, is now available for free download from the Laidler website.

The easy to read guide has recently been updated to cover the latest information on legislation including the EMC and Low Voltage Directives and the most recent changes to the Machinery Directive. It also covers risk assessment and hazard analysis, and step-by-step advice on CE marking and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER).

Commenting on the updates to the guide Paul Laidler, of Laidler Associates said, “Things have moved on since the first publication of this guide and the response that we have received regarding its usefulness to those dealing with machinery safety has been really positive. As before, the guide aims to benefit both machine builders and end users and because both sides need a good understanding of the legislation and processes surrounding machinery safety, this guide will help bridge the gap in understanding between the two.”

As well as featuring information about what to look for in a pre-purchase audit and a section on different types of electrical safety products, the guide also features forms, charts and checklists that can be used to conduct a machinery safety inspection.

Free to download and available to request as a hard copy at, ‘A practical guide to machinery safety’ provides companies with suggestions and guidance for the best route to compliance and is a must-read for those with responsibility for machinery safety. are not responsible for the content of submitted or externally produced articles and images.
