The plant and machines may not be cleaned, repaired or maintained while in operation


Explanation:
Your author's differentiation between "plant" and "machines" is a little strange.

Both the "Anlage" and the "Maschinen" will require cleaning, maintenance and repairs sooner or later but we can get around that by using "plant or machines".

It is also not necessary to try to make a difference between "Reinigen" and "Putzen"

Some possibilities might be:

1. The maintenance, repair or cleaning of the plant or machines during operation is forbidden/not allowed.

2. The maintenance, repair or cleaning of the plant or machines while in operation is forbidden/not allowed.

3. Neither the plant nor individual machines may be cleaned, repaired or maintained during operation.

4. The plant and machines may not be cleaned, repaired or maintained while in operation.

5. Maintenance, repairs or cleaning are forbidden/not allowed during plant or machine operation.

6. Maintenance, repairs or cleaning are forbidden/not allowed while the plant or machines are in operation.

I think I would take number 4.

Repairs on the plant as well as the cleaning and mopping at running machines is forbidden.


Explanation:
There is a difference between "plant" and "machines".A plant is a conglomeration of many different machines in one place producing the different parts to make one endproduct. For example a carmanufacturing plant is not one giant machine building the car all by itself,but rather an assemblyline of different machines and tools producing the vehicle in individual steps.Also the above suggestion of translating "maintenance" for "putzen" I find inaccurate.I'm not so sure that my suggestion is that great there either but it's my attempt at interpreting the by the author suggested difference between "reinigen" and "putzen".I think they might interpret "reinigen" with a general kind of cleaning while in Germany "putzen" would be rather associated with mopping a floor.I also chose the term "running machines" since "running" is according to Langenscheidt a correct translation for "laufend" in this context also it supports the image of machines in motion thus causing hazards to personnel performing possibly dangerous tasks under these circumstances.
