Is addressed above all to designers, manufacturers; users, operators; consultants and controllers concerning safety at work (safety of machines and installations)
Win European partners for the project group, develop a working program. Put together a list of organisations playing a role in the relation manufacturer - operator and describe the activities of the participating countries.
Some new machines used in the enterprises cause problems for the safety and health of the users. Not all manufacturers or designers have sufficient knowledge of the regulations and standards valid in the European Union or do not apply them correctly. In each member state authorities have been put into charge of the market surveillance. This system could be improved by a stronger integration of competent prevention bodies which are in a close contact with the users as well as with the manufacturers of machines. They would be able to facilitate the communication between the concerned parties and could benefit from all the observations and information in order to promote the prevention. This is the contribution which this working group can do for the system of market surveillance.
