Comprehensive instruction/training of operators

Step4 of 5

Operator training

You as a manufacturer can make an important contribution to safe operation of machinery by ensuring that the machine operators are comprehensively trained in the correct machinery operation – in all modes of operation including maintenance.

Information and training regarding safety and health protection when using the machine are part of the instruction; for example:

  • conditions of use
  • foreseeable incidents during work
  • foreseeable hazards during work
  • obligatory checks of the protective equipment
  • use of personal protective equipment (PPE)

The instruction and training provided should be documented. This documentation should at least provide information on trainees, trainers, date and subject of training.
