With the new Machinery Safety Regulations coming into force on 29 December 2009, Wieland Electric is hosting a series of free machinery safety seminars through November and December to help engineers prepare for the changes and make a smooth transition. Two standards, EN 62061 and EN ISO 13849-1, are are due to replace EN 954-1 and are aimed at achieving an acceptable risk level for machinery.
