Recently we have seen a very high demand for AR roller units for turning machines (lathes) from customers wanting to ensure that their machines are fully compliant with the latest health and safety regulations.
One way to ensure compliance with the requirements of Regulation 11 of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations is to conform to the best practice guidelines as set out in the European Safety Norm – EN ISO 23125:2010+A1:2012.
The basics for manually-operated lathes are outlined as follows:
interlocked chuck guard
feed and lead screw protection
saddle or splash guard if the risk of ejection demands it (risk assessment)
rear fixed guard
spindle braking above 1.5hp
gear drive cover (fixed or interlocked)
In addition, Regulation 11(1) of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 states:
Every employer shall ensure that measures are taken in accordance with paragraph (2) which are effective (a) to prevent access to any dangerous part of machinery or to any rotating stock-bar; or (b) to stop the movement of any dangerous part of machinery or rotating stock-bar before any part of a person enters a danger zone.
(5) In this regulation – “danger zone” means any zone in or around machinery in which a person is exposed to a risk to health or safety from contact with a dangerous part of machinery or a rotating stock-bar; “stock-bar” means any part of a stock-bar which projects beyond the head-stock of a lathe.
