Laidler Associates is running a series of short Interactive Machinery Safety Workshops that are FREE to attend.
'Practical Solutions' is the main focus of the day, so a virtual reality environment is used to represent, as accurately as possible, a genuine production environment. Throughout the day delegates will be able to assess common hazards and correct them, taking the environment from unsafe to safe.
These workshops will be of particular interest to mechanical or electrical engineers involved in specification, design, maintenance or modification of machinery, as well as managers responsible for production, maintenance or design of factory equipment, or anyone else involved in specifying or purchasing machinery.
The workshops provide an excellent opportunity to ensure that attendees' knowledge of machinery safety is accurate and up-to-date, thereby minimising the risk of non-compliance, which could put workers at risk and lead to prosecution.
Workshops are held at locations around the UK, specifically covering requirements relating to CE Marking to the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER). Topics discussed during the day include current and forthcoming legislation, EN standards and their effect on industry, risk assessment and its implications, and safety control systems.
In addition to the formal programme, the workshops include a question-and-answer session where attendees can seek expert advice and guidance on their own specific problems in relation to machinery safety.
