Pilz Automation Technology has significantly enhanced its range of machinery safety training courses and has published a new booklet and course schedule for 2013.
The one-, two- and four-day City & Guilds Machinery Safety courses, which are accredited by the National Skills Academy for Materials, Production and Supply, will be running more frequently and with added regional dates to cope with continuously high demand. Alongside this, an internationally recognised option – TUV CMSE (Certified Machinery Safety Expert) - has also been added.

Standard and customised courses
All scheduled courses take place at the Pilz training facilities in Corby, Northamptonshire. However, additional training can be provided at the customer's own premises. Furthermore, although Pilz trainers are highly qualified to address individual concerns throughout the scheduled courses, if a more customised approach is desired, courses tailored to meet specific company needs are available on request.
The current range of Pilz machinery safety courses has evolved from more than 20 years of in-house expertise not only in training, but also in the practical application of standards by Pilz engineers and consultants when, for example, designing safety circuits and advising manufacturing companies on how to best comply with UK Regulations. The courses therefore offer practical insights and advice in addition to covering the essentials of current legislation.
Martin Palmer, the Training Manager at Pilz Automation, comments: "Despite the plethora of information available on the subject of machinery safety, I still believe that machine builders and users appreciate the opportunity that our range of courses can offer to discuss and resolve individual concerns in a practical environment."
