Hi Bob

Oh yes, they sell it also in UK…it’s a free country (or countries) and you can buy everything here (btw, in UK they advertise it as a “router table push block” but, everybody knows the real purpose)

Of course you cannot control amateurs (like in USA) but for registered business the regulation states “Blade guard MUST be installed for ANY operation on the table saw” (as I remember the same OSHA regulation applies in USA) and if an inspector will come and find that somebody is operating the table saw without a guard…or in case of an accident, the guard was not installed…this guy will be in deep….trouble.

Please have a look at this site (it’s a 260kb PDF file) and you will see a few interesting things about the EU safety regulations that because of them also the amateurs are getting better and safer machines.
