3.0 out of 5 stars Few Alternatives 19 July 2013
By Paul McCutcheon - Published on
Format: Paperback
Because there are very few books out there about industrial safety / machinery safety, I'd love to say this is a great book.
It is a useful overview. There are few if any alternatives.

Might now be a bit dated, with the changes to the european Machinery Directive and newer standards like EN ISO 13849.

Some of the content looked to be previously delivered in a "workshop".
(References to the workshop were left in, which I feel casual editing should have caught)

Some of the content appeared to be re-cycled safety equipment manufacturer's information. Bit of a hodge podge.
Useful, but you could get it for free from the original source.

I would have liked to see the case studies developed at the beginning, and worked through to the end.
(ie description, risk assessment, safety design, validation)

For the american market, dependent as it is on liability cases, it might have been interesting to see a summary of case law.
Some actual accident investigations from the european end might have been useful.
3.0 out of 5 stars Useful info about field instruments 20 Dec. 2009
By Oilconx - Published on
Format: Paperback
Chapter 7 - Safety in the field instruments and devices is quite good-written including a couple of practical tips. However, the parts about hazard assessment (FAR) etc. seem to be unnecessary have no connection to the rest of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book for industrial engineers 28 May 2008
By Thomas E. Seeley - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book provided a wealth of background on the topic of machine safety. I particularly appreciated how it detailed the history of the respective safety standards.
