Basic terminology, methodology.BS EN ISO 12100 provides designers with an overall framework and guidance to enable them to produce machines that are safe for their intended use. It also provides a strategy for standard makers. The concept of safety of machinery considers the ability of a machine to perform its intended function(s) during its lifecycle where risk has been adequately reduced. All our bespoke guarding systems comply with this standard.
