Is the machine safe?

Machines have a CE marking when purchased. Are they safe then?

A CE marking is solely a test from the manufacturer.
For the user it is important to know that:

  • the machine is placed in a safe environment;
  • the machine is properly maintained;
  • the machine is used for the purpose it was intended for;
  • the work is performed in accordance with the instructions for use;
  • for modified and self-assembled equipment and machines a risk analysis needs to be carried out; ask your supervisor or health & safety coordinator about this.
