safety guards for machine tools

summary EN 953 Safety of Machinery – Workshop Machinery

safety guards for machine tools

All companies operating work equipment are legally obliged to comply with the requirements imposed by the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER 98). Most modern production machinery is now manufactured to meet these standards, however you may have older tool room, maintenance shop and some production machinery that is still critical to your business.

Perhaps you don’t have the resources to dedicate to these machines or the expertise within your organisation relating to PUWER compliance and European Safety Standards. Consequently this machinery may not meet with current legislation and could be putting your employees, your reputation and your business at risk.

We specialise in providing complete safety guarding solutions for industrial machinery and specifically in making old machinery compliant.

In order to offer the best possible products and services to our customers we have established Machine Safety, a partnership between Machine Covers Limited and safety specialists ISS Safety Limited. The partnership pulls together a vast resource of knowledge and experience in providing effective solutions to ensure your machinery complies with the requirements imposed by PUWER 98.

We are also the official distributor and agent for Repar2 UK, manufacturer of cutting-edge machinery guarding with a worldwide reputation for excellence.

We can offer a complete solution for your business, from initial risk assessment through safety system design, build, integration, certification and user training.
