The origin of this ebook; Safe Design and Construction of Machinery: Regulation; Practice and Performance (ePub/PDF) is the compelling evidence that a high proportion of machinery-related injuries and deaths are attributable to serious and genuine risks originating within machine construction and design. This trend continues despite significant legal obligations; notably the European regulatory regime giving effect to the Machinery Directive (among others); and a substantial body of specialist knowledge originating in the disciplines of human factors and safety engineering.
Grounded in empirical research with machinery manufacturers; Safe Design and Construction of Machinery aims to elucidate the processes and factors shaping companies’ performance for machinery safety; and considers their compatibility with legal obligations. Through a unique blending of rich empirical data coupled with human factors; safety; socio-legal; and learning scholarship; the ebook provides both a nuanced account of firms’ performance for machinery safety and makes theoretical and conceptual contributions to understanding and explaining their performance. Specifically; the ebook elucidates the role of knowledge and motivational factors – and how these are constituted – in shaping a company’s performance. It reveals the multiple non-state and state influences that create plural responses among manufacturing firms; which typically operate in supply chains and networks; and often worldwide. These insights provide the foundations to enhance the regulatory design; and the ebook’s conclusion recommends some innovative directions for regulatory interventions to sustain the safe design and construction of machinery.
