I have a power press with a travel speed of 1cm / second and therefore I understand there  is no requirement for a guard. Does this also exempt it from the (thorough) inspection requirements of PUWER.

Need to review document L112 and determine the full extent of what you need to do/not do.

Hello michaelt,
Can I ask you first, where you got your 0.6m/s from?

Next where you get the no requirements for a guard from?

Penultimately what you are referring to when you state that it’s exempt from “thorough examination”?

Lastly please, what kind of “power press” is it?

Does it have a flywheel & clutch, or is it for example a screw press, or hydraulic press?
