Dear Abhay,
It is essential that your Managers/engineers/safety personnel to incorporate the safety features as needed by your organization. From machine to machine required safety features will differ. How ever for your guidance I am attaching two check lists which may be suitably modified to meet your requirement.
Kindly confirm if these suit you.

Dear Abhay,


What do I do when I have bought new machinery?

1. Check that it has CE marking (where necessary) and ask for a copy of the EC Declaration of Conformity if you have not been given one.

2. Check that the supplier has explained what the machinery is designed to be used for and what it cannot be used for (unless this is off-the-shelf machinery).

3. Make sure a manual has been supplied which includes instructions for safe use, assembly, installation, commissioning, safe handling, adjustment and maintenance.

4. Make sure the instruction manual is written in English. (The maintenance instructions may however be written in another language if specialised staff from the manufacturer or supplier will carry out maintenance).

5. Make sure information has been provided about any remaining risks from the machine, and the precautions you need to take to deal with them. These may include electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, stored energy, thermal, radiation or health hazards.

6. Check that data about noise and vibration levels have been provided and, where necessary, explained to you.

7. Ensure that any warning signs are visible and easy to understand.

8. For a complex or custom-built machine arrange for a trial run so you can be shown the safety features and how they work.

9. Check to see if you think the machine is safe.

10. Make sure any early concerns about the safety of the machine are reported to the supplier.


Never assume that machinery is safe just because it has CE marking.
