Mechanical and electrical hazards

Machinery, its parts, tools, objects and materials processed or used in the work process are often a source of mechanical hazards leading to injuries. Machinery, along with power supply systems, can also create electrical hazards, leading to severe or fatal accidents.

The Institute's activities:

  • identification of mechanical and electrical hazards and development of methods of occupational risk assessment
  • development of requirements and technical and organisational solutions in the field of the safety of machinery and workstations
  • testing and assessment of machinery compliance with the requirements of occupational safety and health
  • development of guidelines aimed at elimination or reducing mechanical and electrical hazards
