Laidler Associates will once again be sponsoring the Plant & Machinery Safety Zone at Health and Safety '11 – South, which takes place at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey, on 1/2 March 2011.
Laidler Associates, which specialises in machinery safety legislation and risk assessments, will deliver a presentation at Health and Safety '11 – South on Practical machinery safety including guarding issues. Using its virtual reality system to simulate a typical working environment, Laidler is able to bring to life the problems that are present and demonstrate how to provide safe solutions.
Focusing on the practical nature of the zone, Laidler will also demonstrate how to complete and document a PUWER 98 (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 98) assessment, as well as CE Marking to the Machinery and Low Voltage Directives. The presentation will, therefore, cover the requirements of the new Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
Laidler Associates is also exhibiting at the event on stand number 156. Sharing the stand is partner company Safety Systems Technology, a machinery safety design and installation specialist. It can provide a range of engineering services, from design studies through to full turnkey projects. And, as an independent company, it is not tied to any safety product vendor, enabling it to design and install 'best of breed' systems.
