||Waste compactors are used to reduce volumes of wastes such as cardboard, printing industry trimmings, plastic bottles and industrial wastes. This practical safety information sheet applies to manually-fed horizontal hydraulic compactors. The main hazard associated with the use of this type of equipment is the risk of being crushed by the compacting head during normal operations, which include the feeding of waste, removal of unsuitable waste and recovery from jamming. Contents: main causes of accidents; preventive measures (compactor selection, access control, personal protective equipment, safety instructions, instructions to operators, organizational measures).
