||The large number of occupational accidents related to the use of machines has led the EU to ensure that the machines sold are safer by decreeing the new Directive Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC as well as by reviewing and adopting a set of standards and documents relating to machinery safety at the design stage. This article describes the procedure for risk identification and assessment aimed at reducing risks when designing machinery.
