The Machine Designers' Data Book for Safety is an easy-to-search reference book containing tables, charts and formulas, compiled for machine design engineers, maintenance engineers and managers responsible for the safety of machinery.
Designers of machinery are tasked with two engineering problems: designing to make the machine function and designing to make the machine safe. Making the machine safe is an obligation, particularly in Europe where the EU Machinery Directive is implemented in national legislation. Harmonised standards have been prepared to help but there are over 700 of these, with information scattered across them and the diligent designer having to laboriously search for the guidance needed.
The objective of the book is to make standards more transparent and easy to use. The book summarises the most frequently used engineering guidance and calculations and focuses them into a quick, readable reference format, 'mapping' standards into an accessible format within one publication.
