What attributes and skills do you need in order to be an effective machine safety engineer in any organisation?

I have observed this to be true even in organisations who implement ‘traditional’ health and safety topics such as COSHH, manual handling, slips/trips/falls etc. In nearly 20 years of working in a variety of roles and companies, it seems that in general terms this boils down to two basic truisms: a) that health and safety professionals don’t know enough about engineering, while engineers don’t know enough about health and safety; and b) for whatever reason, these two disciplines seldom work together effectively to achieve the right result. To a greater or lesser extent, both parties see machine safety as the job of the other. Click the link above to read the full article!
