PLC software, or programmable logic controller software, is a software-based computer system that controls automated industrial processes. This can include machinery used in manufacturing, assembly lines, traffic control and more. PLC software is programmed to perform a sequence of tasks triggered by certain inputs, and is designed to stand up to use in harsh industrial environments. So, what industries are you most likely to find PLC software in, and what are the benefits? Uses for PLC Software You can useWhy do I need a CDM Coordinator?
To ensure the health and safety of all involved in your manufacturing project, having a CDM coordinator is vital. The CDM (Construction, Design and Management) coordinator makes sure that all health and safety guidelines are followed during work. Having a coordinator on hand also makes sure all workers fully understand all CDM requirements. Ultimately, the role makes sure that all risks are found and reduced, creating a much safer worksite. Whether your CDM coordination work is outsourced or in-house, thereWhat Do I Need to Know About The CDM Regulations?
The CDM Regulations are designed to protect construction workers from health and safety risks. Over 2 million people work in construction in the UK and the industry is one of the most dangerous industries you can work in. Therefore, the regulations have been designed to try and make workers safer. They do this by lowering risks to workers’ health, safety and wellbeing through the good management of projects. Since 1998, ST&L have been helping companies to keep within legal safetyWhat is CE Marking?
If your business sells machinery on the extended Single Market in the European Economic Area, it must comply with the safety standards set out in the Machinery Directive. By meeting these standards, your machines can earn the CE mark. But what is CE marking? You’ll find the letters CE on many products traded within the EEA, including those made in other countries. CE is an abbreviation of the French phrase “Conformité Européene”, or European Conformity. Not all goods sold inSteps Taken During a PUWER Inspection
To make sure your equipment is in good working order it is vital that a PUWER inspection is carried out regularly. PUWER stands for Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations.

All procedures and processes in the workplace must conform to the Health and Safety at Work Act of 2015. Therefore, hereWhy Do I Need a PUWER Assessment?
The main aim of a PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998) assessment, is to help make sure that workers are safe at all times when working with equipment that could cause harm. As a result, companies will need to follow these guidelines in order to protect their employees and to make sure that the machinery in question meets all of the regulatory requirements. Hefty fines may otherwise be imposed. Let’s take a closer look at PUWER assessmentsMachinery Safety Assessment Tool (MSAT)
