Wood Working Machines
While all machines present risks to the worker woodworking machines present particular risks to UCL Estates maintenance staff because they are in common use in the workshop and consist of sharp moving parts that must be protected against. Managers/supervisors must carry out risk assessments of the woodworking machines for which they are responsible and ensure that safety control measures are in place. These should include maintenance programs, method statements or working protocols and training as appropriate. Only competent staff are allowed to operate woodworking machines (this will normally mean only designated workshop staff). Staff have a responsibility to protect their own safety and the safety of others when operating woodworking machines, they must comply with the safety control measures implemented for their safety.
