Machinery and Conveyor Safety Initiative 2020

The Authority has worked with the Irish Concrete Federation to run an initiative in 2020 around Machinery and Conveyor Safety.

Unguarded machinery, particularly conveyors, carry a high risk of entanglement resulting in serious and possible fatalities to persons carrying out maintenance or clean-up operations.


The Machinery Guarding Training Pack provides information on inspecting conveyors and machinery and the standard of guarding that should be provided.
