DESIGN FOR SAFETY IN AGRICULTURAL MACHINERY
The field of machine safety has recently received new issues by the introduction of the directive 2006/42/CE in EU Countries. The impact of this novelty is significant because of the new Essential Health and Safety Requirements proposed by this directive and the extension of its scope. The research work concerned the field of agricultural tractors, which partially fall under the scope of this directive. The output of the study consisted in the development of an integrated procedure for Risk Assessment, which is aimed at supporting all stakeholders involved in the use of tractors.
