  Risks:           a) Tripping:
                   • All tools and parts removed from the machine will be placed where they do not
                     present a hazard.
                   • In the event of a fire alarm sounding, the Océ service technician will
                     immediately return the machine to its normal position and ensure that the exit
                     routes are not obstructed.

                   may be asked if assistance can be provided to move the machine or dismount /
                   replace an assembly if the Océ service technician believes that to do so alone
                   would present a risk of injury.

                   the machine for both safety and function before asking the customer to confirm

  Training:        Customer staff do not require training to ensure their safety while operating the
                   equipment. Operator training to maximise productivity and conduct operator-
                   maintenance activities is available on some high-volume models.
