Safety


This section is addressed to floor-cleaning machine users and intends to underline the possible health risks involved in their work, along with any possible precautions to prevent such risks.

That's why we're going to present the main risk factors involved in operating floor-cleaning machines, highlighting each time how such factors may affect the operator's health.
We've listed some basic rules of behaviour below, firstly so you can check the machine is safe and complies with all the regulations in force; secondly, to avoid practices which may increase any of these risk factors.
