This brochure from the ETUI takes stock of trade union participation in European standardization over the twenty years since the Machinery Directive was adopted. Since 1989, the ETUI has helped to develop ways and means by which to give workers an active say in technical standards development. It is highly complex work, but work that is vital to their safety because poorly-designed machines cause injury, illness and death.

This booklet looks at what trade unionists across Europe from Sienna to Hamburg and Brussels to Rouen are doing with doctors, ergonomists and engineers to see that machinery is designed not just with the financial bottom line, but also and especially human factors, in mind.
