Machinery of all kinds are frequently used in various workshops, from food processing plants and garages to furniture and car factories. All these machines must be subjected to rigorous quality controls before they can be considered safe for use and receive a stamp of approval. However, despite all of the strict safety measures, accidents still continue to occur in workplaces where such machines are used.

The term machine covers a very wide range of equipment, from heavy machinery on a construction site to a simple pen used in an office. Among others:

  • electronic devices;
  • electrical equipment;
  • power tools and hand tools;
  • kitchen equipment;
  • office equipment;
  • furniture such as office chairs and desks;
  • ladders and scaffolding;
  • vehicles including cars, vans, tractors, forklifts, etc;
  • cleaning equipment.

At the workplace, it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that all safeguards are in place and that all machinery is used properly and safely. This includes:

  • Carrying out risk assessments in relation to machinery and associated work processes;
  • Regular maintenance of all machines;
  • Giving the highest priority to necessary repairs;
  • Ensuring that all personnel who will be working with machines have received the necessary training;
  • Ensuring that all personnel are provided with the relevant protective equipment and that the complete equipment is always worn when operating a machine.
