Course leads to City & Guilds Machinery Safety Certificate

Few engineers would be prepared to state that they are fully familiar with all aspects of the regulations, standards and risk management techniques relating to machinery safety. LC Automation therefore has a number of four-day courses available in conjunction with Pilz, which will present all of this material in the form of a single training package suitable for electrical and mechanical engineers and engineering managers.

In addition to classroom sessions there are also practical exercises and examinations that, if passed, lead to the candidate being awarded a City & Guilds Machinery Safety Certificate.
