The new Machinery Directive adopted in 2006 came into effect on 29 December 2009. It is a particularly complex piece of legislation that needs a route map through it in order to be implemented with proper regard for workers' safety. ETUI expert Stefano Boy analyses the new law's requirements on the health and safety of users, and identifies where it improves on the previous legislation. The brochure is a joint venture with the German Commission for Occupational Health and Safety and Standardization, KAN.
