Expert advice should be sought before positioning fixed machinery and equipment to ensure safety requirements are met.
Safety checks should be carried out at least once an academic year, with items such as transparent guards and cutters being checked every time they are used.
All machines that are connected to an isolator and wired through a stop-button system should be tested for electrical safety at least once a year by a trained, competent person. If they fail any of the tests, they should not be used again until they have been upgraded or repaired by a qualified electrician.
