Hence identification of a wide range of hazards was common to the European and Australian regimes, as were a process of assessment, elimination or reduction of risks, and consideration of different stages of the life cycle, different aspects of use of machinery, and intended and unintended use (see also European harmonized standards for machinery risk assessment CEN, 1997; 2003a; now CEN, 2010). A process of design verification for designated types of machinery and provision of safety information were also elements of both regimes, as was the application of technical standards.

Examples from NOHSC, 2000, pp. xiii, 86). , 1999). , 2005; 2008; NIOSH, 2013; Safe Work Australia, 2009, p. 15). The importance of inherently safe design has been recognized in a series of public policy and professional initiatives in the United States, Europe and Australia, based on the premise that one of the most effective ways to prevent work-related deaths and injuries is to design out hazards and integrate risk control measures at the source (ASSE, 2011; European Commission, 2008, pp. , 2008).

52, 375舑6; 2002, pp. 45舑6). There was little evidence that market and industry influences were linked with manufacturers performing well for substantive safety outcomes and, in some respects, the findings signal the need for regulators to contemplate strategies to reshape or, in worst cases, disarm the counterproductive influence of some market and industry actors. In essence then, knowledge and motivational factors shaped the quality and rigour of manufacturers舗 actions for machinery safety and, in turn, their performance for substantive safety outcomes.
