Avoid entrapping risks

Which is a really important danger associated with furniture products?
One of the most difficult dangers to assess is fingers entrapment.

It can be generated by moving parts or by simply applying the weight of the user to the product.
In a risk analysis, the resulting risk is usually not acceptable, because the severity of the damage is never negligible, as it implies injuries to the fingers or hands, resulting from crushing, compression, actual cuts, or even fingers being severed.

Effective risk management will therefore have to eliminate the probability of this scenario. This is exactly what the technical standards on the safety of furniture products require (read more).
