Safeguarding Machinery and Equipment

This manual is mainly for employers, but it contains useful information for everyone who owns, operates, maintains, or sells powered machinery and equipment. Divided into three main parts, the content covers identifying different kinds of hazards, assessing the risks, and controlling hazards. It also includes a safeguarding checklist, applicable standards in the OHS Regulation, and safeguarding risk assessment tables.
