Working safely

Did you know that there are legally obligatory safety regulations?

Do you know which safeguards you may, and sometimes must, switch off while working?

When must you activate a machine’s safeguards?

Quite often, safeguards are bypassed or switched off during maintenance work, when adjusting machines or when solving malfunctions. Doing so can endanger you or others.

Often, at the request of production, safeguards are switched off to keep the production process running. This is done without considering the consequences for the safety of the machine operators.

During this training course, we inform the participants of the legal safety regulations which must be followed, and we can answer all of their questions on this subject.
