In certain cases Cat3 itself is not completely implemented. Photo of a machine sold in Australia claiming to meet AS in all circumstances. Unfortunately, because the requirements are so complex, few prospective buyers are able to to verify a machine does in fact meet the standards that are claimed. The consequences of this mutual lack of understanding can be very significant.

An employer may be prosecuted following a serious harm incident if it is found that due process was not followed in providing safe and compliant machinery. The employer has a legal responsibility to verify that not only is their machinery truly safe and compliant, but safe in their own environment and conditions of use. Anyone involved in the purchase of certified industrial equipment for example with Cat3 safety should review if they truly understand what is required, and consider getting advice from a qualified specialist before committing to any purchase.

This allows the purchaser to take an informed decision on whether the provided safety features are suitable for their specific environment and intended use. Once a machine is delivered it should be formally inspected to ensure that every safety function works exactly as intended, and there are no loopholes that might allow those functions to be bypassed.

Finally, there should be documented evidence that the machine has been verified by an independent, qualified specialist to fully comply with the relevant standards. This process is time-consuming and expensive, and the equipment required to ensure compliance is also expensive and complex. Suppliers quoting on compliant machinery must be able to present documented evidence of that compliance.

In the event of a Serious Harm Incident, the machinery purchaser may be required to testify that they were qualified to take decisions regarding safety and compliance. There are many different approaches to delivering workplace safety, but the full standards process must be followed to claim protection before the law. This will not only help to keep your staff safe, it will protect you from litigation should an accident unfortunately occur.

Please remember that this article is an overview only, and must not be considered a comprehensive guide to workplace safety compliance.
