Abstract
New avenues are reviewed and discussed for preventing industrial machine-related injury by means of realistic risk evaluation and reduction processes at the design and application stages of machinery development and use. U.S. guidelines and European standards on machinery risk assessment procedures are described. Applications of risk assessment for machine-related injury risk management and teaching machine-risk control are discussed.
