Health & SafetyMachinery Directive and the PUWER
The Machinery Directive and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) currently places huge emphasis on safety in the workplace.
Therefore, when designing, assembling and using pneumatic systems it is paramount that attention to safety and safe operating systems is undertaken.
Generally, pneumatic components are not designed as safety components. Therefore, they are not directly covered under legislative scope. Pneumatic components however, are used frequently to satisfy safety related functions.
Our products listed are here to help machine designers and general pneumatics users, when correctly applied, to create safe pneumatic systems.
