Our checklists make it possible to check whether a specific machine or group of rails meets the safety requirements of regulations and standards. They are also a tool for occupational risk assessment when operating these machines; they can be used as a source of information for safety instructions. Readers use them in different ways; also for the training of future machine operators. The next list is for paper reel wrapping machines used in paper making and finishing plants. The list of the lists published so far can be found on the website www.atest.com.pl in the "Machines - checklist" tab (box "Thematic cycles"). The digital version of most of these publications is available on the Technical Information Portal (www.sigma-not.pl).
