When an accident involving a production machine occurs, the safety and conformity of the machine are primarily assessed through the machine’s risk assessment document and manuals. As a result, these documents, as well as the machine itself, should always meet the safety requirements set by the law. A responsible employer also considers the health and safety of its employees by ensuring the conformity of production machines. This way unnecessary production outages and other consequences can be avoided.
It is the employer’s responsibility to identify hazards caused by production machines and to manage the associated risks. It may come as a surprise that even old machines must conform with up-to-date safety requirements. In addition, the instruction manuals must be readily available and understandable for all machine users. Another noteworthy point is that the safety and manuals of machines, which have received the CE marking, must also be kept up to date.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Act and the Government Decree on the Safe Use and Inspection of Work Equipment of Finland, the employer must ensure the safe use of production machines with the help of external experts, if the employer itself does not have adequate expertise in the matter. The same requirement applies to maintenance and preparation of instruction manuals for production machines.
