Abstract Recommendations adopted 23 Feb. 1983. They cover all enterprises using such presses (including used and older equipment), except enterprises in the hides and leather industry. General safety measures concern hazards of mechanical origin, falls, control of the machines, signals and signage, older equipment and good operating practice. Specific measures are applicable to hand presses (especially fly-presses) and motor-driven presses (for which it is recommended that the danger zone be rendered inaccessible by placement or guarding).
