This will need a safety screen around the working area and around any moving arm to be compliant with occupational health and safety regulations in many countries. Some safety screens are free standing and some are attached. A provision for the screen and safety interlocks to ensure that the machine will not work if the screen is not closed in those operations that require it should be coincided. Given the diversity of tasks and working pieces being worked on the screen might need several interchangeable pieces. This might be optional for the buyer/builder but will be needed at the design level to clear any long term legal risk. It will not add hugely to the cost if designed early.Wesley bruce 14:54, 4 January 2012 (CET)
