The machines are one of the most important pillars in the industrial economy of the European Union. The aim is to reduce the enormous social price paid for accidents at work, by integration of safe design and construction, as well as proper installation and maintenance.
A harmonized regulatory framework for the design and manufacture of machines is of major economic importance for European industry. At the same time, the safety of machinery makes an important contribution to reducing the social costs of damage to health and accidents at home and workplace.
