This paper provides an introduction to various safety requirements for the design, manufacture and use of industrial machinery systems. To be successful, manufacturers must be aware of the different safety requirements that exist in North America and Europe with respect to electrical, mechanical and electromagnetic compatibility. With this knowledge, manufacturers can reduce the overall time to market and curb potential lawsuits. Users will also benefit from the safer equipment with a reduction of work-related accidents, injuries and down-time.
