Available free to download is the newly re-written A practical guide to machinery safety, sponsored by Laidler Associates. The guide can be downloaded from:

The easy to read guide covers legislation including the EMC and Low Voltage Directives, the ATEX Directive and the very latest information on the new Machinery Directive. It also covers risk assessment and hazard analysis; includes step-by-step advice on CE marking and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER).

Commenting on the new guide Paul Laidler, of Laidler Associates said, "The guide is written to benefit both machine builders and end users. Both sides need a good understanding of the legislation and processes surrounding machinery safety and this guide will help bridge the gap in understanding between the two."

As well as featuring information about what to look for in a pre-purchase audit and a section on different types of electrical safety products the guide also features forms, charts and checklists that can be used to conduct a machinery safety inspection. An EN (ISO) 954-1 chart appears alongside an EN (ISO) 13849-1 equivalent as well as an EN (ISO) 14121-1 check list and CE and PUWER check lists.
