This guide, writ­ten by John Glover, a highly exper­i­enced and well respec­ted con­sult­ant in this area, cov­ers the applic­a­tion of the Machinery Dir­ect­ive and the Pro­vi­sion of Use of Work Equip­ment Reg­u­la­tions (PUWER). Aimed at machinery users, buy­ers, spe­cifiers, con­sult­ants, man­agers and engin­eers, this book provides insight and dir­ec­tion in the applic­a­tion of these import­ant requirements.

The guide will help you to under­stand how your respons­ib­il­it­ies have changed and will help you to meet the leg­al require­ments of the new Machinery Directive.

The guide also provides inform­a­tion on the applic­a­tion of risk man­age­ment tech­niques in the workplace.

If your organ­iz­a­tion is UK-based or exports into the UK mar­ket, this is a must-have guide to the cur­rent regulations.
