12th January 2011

New standards and regulations often feature on the website, but this month's newsletter is somewhat different in that it carries news about training courses covering these topics - in addition to our usual selection of product launches (see below).

In the 'Events' section of the newsletter we have an announcement from Pilz relating to its machinery safety training courses, and we have recently published information about events hosted by Leuze electronic, HSL (part of the HSE) and PPMA.

As well as the machinery safety events, there are courses available from Bruel & Kjaer (noise and vibration measurement), Burkert (steam engineering and condensate management) and Flir (thermal imaging).

Although you have to pay to attend some of these courses and seminars, this is not always the case (follow the links to find out more). No doubt there are also many other courses available from different suppliers, so apologies for any not mentioned here. If you are running any training courses or seminars in 2011 you can email the details to
