Abstract Detailed description of an application of the risk analysis method "Nis" to the "Slotter", a machine used for the printing and cutting of cardboard sheets used in the manufacture of boxes. The risks were classified in accordance with the different work procedures (adjustment, operation of the machine, cleaning). For each procedure, a table was prepared, where the different processes of the machine, the operations performed to achieve the processes and the risks associated with these operations were indicated. A corresponding analysis sheet was then prepared where the risks were identified and described as well as the causes and consequences of possible accidents due to these risk factors, and finally the preventive measures needed to eliminate the risks.
