      China's plastic machinery network says that all localities] Safety accidents have always been valued by all walks of life. The plastics and rubber machinery industry is no exception. Since the 1980s, a series of safety standards have been introduced to provide shelter for workers in the plastics and rubber industries. And this series of standards also applies to the world.
       In the late 1980s, the directives and regulations called “new methods” that came into force in Europe defined the basic requirements for health, safety and environmental issues. Since then, European plastics and rubber machinery manufacturers have made a significant contribution to the development of uniform standards to ensure that workers in plastics and rubber processing plants work at the highest level of safety. As the number of imported machines in Europe increases, many manufacturers/importers do not comply with the directives, regulations and uniform standards. This means that many factories around the world have installed potentially unsafe machines that put workers at risk.
Safety standards provide shelter for workers in the rubber and plastics industry
        For example, in Europe, about 10 years ago, the Italian Association ASSOCOMAPLAST signed a memorandum of understanding with the customs authorities of the exporting countries that technical inspections were required before the injection molding machine could enter Italy (Mechanical Directive Annex IV). Almost all technical inspections have shown that machines marked “CE” issued by non-European divisions of the notified body largely do not meet safety standards. The security gap caused by non-European manufacturers may be due to lack of understanding of the standards. After all, marking the “CE” on machines that do not meet the specific safety standards set by Europe is neither difficult nor expensive.
Newly issued safety standards
In response to this situation and subsequent workshop safety incidents on the shop floor, the health and safety department inspected and prevented unqualified machines from re-entering Europe.
It should be noted that the CEN (European Committee for Standardization) has updated the TC 145 standard for plastics and rubber machinery, with many new safety standards for machines of the “Class C” plastic and rubber. This new standard was implemented with the contributions of manufacturers and machinery users, as well as experts appointed by the notified bodies and labor ministers in various European countries.
These CEN standards are categorized: “Class C” refers to risk assessment and safety measures for specific types of machines; “Class B” standards are for lateral issues such as parts of safety control systems, safety distances, risk assessment methods, etc. "Class A" refers to instructions and regulations known as mechanical instructions.
Designers and users of industrial machinery are included in this rather complex and regulated structure to ensure that machines with a “CE” mark on the European market are equipped with safety systems that respect risk assessment.
Interestingly, according to the "B" standard EN13849-1:2007, it can be seen how the mechanical designer decides the level of performance of the safety control device from the lowest (a) to the highest (e).
General safety standard
All in all, since the 1980s, 17 standards issued by CEN TC 145 have been published in European publications and enforced in Europe.
For this particular industry sector, the Technical Committee TC 270 (Plastics and Rubber Machinery) in the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) was created in 2012. A related working group, WG1, is currently studying the safety standards for injection molding machines, and in order to have a common standard applicable to all parts of the world, representatives from Europe, Brazil, China, Japan, the United States and other countries have given their support.
In particular, the Chinese delegation appointed by the China Standardization Administration has participated in the activities of ISO TC 270 from the outset and contributed their own experience to release safety regulations for plastics and rubber machinery in China.
to sum up
In order to ensure a safe workplace, it is important to adopt safety standards in all areas of the national authorities, the plastics and rubber industries.
The main goal is to have a common standard throughout the world to ensure that all plastic and rubber processing plants have the best level of safety and that the safety systems designed by machine builders are consistent.
ISO TC 270 will study specific safety standards step by step, as has been done in the past by CENTC145. After the injection molding machine, the second project will focus on the rotary molding machine.
