Updated: Safe Use of Machinery Resources
Updated and practical advice for safe use of machinery – aimed at the manufacturing sector in particular – is now available from WorkSafe New Zealand.
Developed with industry input, the new resources are new Best Practice Guidelines (BPG) for the Safe Use of Machinery, an accompanying Safe Use of Machinery toolkit produced specifically for small to medium sized businesses (SMEs), and a set of machine-specific fact sheets.
The updated resources were a response to the high incidence of workplace injuries – and in some cases deaths – due to inadequate machine guarding and machines not being used safely.
