Machinery Safety

What is "Machinery Safety"?

By Machinery Safety is generally meant freedom from unacceptable risks of hazards (other than electrical hazards) brought about by the design/development and implementation of design into a "real" machine.  Machinery hazards include not only mechanical hazards (crushing, pinching, shearing etc) that may occur due to access to moving parts of the machine - by poor design or by failure of interlocking circuitry - but all other hazards that may be present within machinery ...such as.......:-

Thermal Hazards, Noise Hazards, Emission of Fumes, Dust or Harmful Gas, Slips, Trips and Fall Hazards, Emissions of Harmful Radiation (- generally non-ionizing such as Ultra-sonics, Laser, UV, Static Magnetic Fields.....etc)......etc
