NOT an emergency stop!

Please make everyone you know aware of this disturbing situation.

We support a higher education college on an outsourced basis to assist them in managing their safety requirements.  There is a surprisingly diverse set of risks to control from woodworking to equine and across to engineering and so the breadth of knowledge required is high.

Whilst we were completing a series of audits our consultant came across the following which looks like an emergency stop but ISN’T;

The second photo shows three locations all of which look like emergency stops,  the upper most one is not, you raise the cover to have a on off button revealed.  If this was an emergency then it would be too late and serious injury could result.

We advised for this to be altered to remove the cover to prevent confusion, if you have similar arrangements make sure that you do the same and please pass this information on to others.
