NEW Education website for further and higher education
BSI has recently launched a new website for education. The website contains information on standards and their benefits for further and higher education students. Content on standards for specific subjects including engineering is also covered.
PD 5304:2005 Guidance on safe use of machinery
PD 5304:2005 covers the safe use of machinery and provides comprehensive guidance on practical measures and techniques that may be applied to machinery so as to safeguard operators, maintenance personnel and others.
The guidelines deal with issues ranging from selection of protective measures and safeguards through to practical examples of guard design and their application. It provides advice on the safeguarding and use of machinery prior to the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 1992 (normally machines supplied before 1995) as well as guidance for users of machinery designed to and manufactured in accordance with harmonized European machinery safety standards.
PD 5304:2005 supersedes PD 5304:2000, which is withdrawn.
