Abstract Many European directives, in particular the "Machinery" directive 98/37/EC (see CIS 99-29), require manufacturers to conduct a risk assessment with respect to the safety and health of users of the machinery. The risk assessment method IDAR® is presented. It analyses the activities of the operators for each phase of the life cycle of the equipment. This guide shows how to use this easy-to-implement method, and it includes advice and practical examples. Appendices include the full text of the "Machinery" directive and a list of relevant European and ISO standards.
