Code of practice on safety in the use of machinery includes provisions for second-hand, rebuilt or redeployed machinery

The International Labor Organization (ILO) has posted online, a Draft code of practice on safety in the use of machinery. The draft document:
• provides guidance on safety in the use of machinery at the workplace;
• includes recommendations and requirements regarding the obligations, responsibilities, and rights of competent authorities, designers, manufacturers,suppliers,employers, and workers;
• sets out technical requirements/information on the protection of workers against hazards, risk assessments, characteristics of guards and protective devices;
• provides safety requirements for different types of machinery; and
• applies to any work activity in which machinery is used and to all stages of the lifespan cycle of the machinery including second-hand, rebuilt, or redeployed
 machinery being used in workplaces.


A meeting of experts on safety in the use of machinery will be convened in Geneva from November 27 to December 7, 2011, to draw up and adopt the final code of practice on safety in the use of machinery.
