Safety Consultancy Brochure
Applicable Irish Legislation
Legislation relating to machinery safety has evolved rapidly over recent years. Under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act (General Application) Regulations 2007, Chapter 2 of Part 2: Use of Work Equipment, an employer is required to ensure “any work equipment provided for use by employees at a place of work complies, as appropriate, with the provisions of any relevant enactment implementing any relevant Directive of the European Communities relating to work equipment with respect to safety and health”.
The European Communities (Machinery) Regulations 2008 (S.I. No. of 2008) requires that a CE mark be affixed to the machinery and the supplier is required to issue a Declaration of Conformance, unless the machinery is to be incorporated into other machinery, in which case it directs that the CE mark shall not be affected.
- It is a requirement for all machinery that a Technical File can, or for some machines, must be compiled. In practice, this often means compiling it as a project progresses.
- Complying with applicable mandatory Essential Health and Safety Requirements (EHSRs) from a long list given in the directive
- Undertaking the correct conformity assessment procedure
