MESH was asked by M-real to undertake an independent risk assessment on a large semi-automated paper sheeting machine at its paper mill in Sittingbourne, Kent. The assessment involved reviewing the safety implications of staff working on this machine and the effectiveness of the extensive guarding systems in place. MESH reviewed the compliance of the guarding to the requirements of PUWER and provided feedback to management on where a number of improvements could be implemented.
