Free interactive machinery safety training workshops, which have been specifically developed to make suppliers and users of machinery aware of legal obligations, are now being offered by Laidler.

The workshops are aimed at mechanical and electrical engineers involved in the specification, design, maintenance or modification of machinery; managers responsible for production, maintenance or design of factory equipment; and others whose work involves specifying or purchasing machinery or equipment.

The workshops provide an opportunity to ensure that their knowledge of machinery safety is accurate, complete and up to date, thereby minimising the risk of non-compliance.

Held at locations around the UK, the workshops specifically cover requirements relating to CE Marking and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER).

Topics discussed during the day include current and forthcoming legislation, EN standards and their implications, risk assessment and safety control systems.

Illustrative and informative case studies will also be presented.

In addition to the formal sessions, the workshop programme includes a question and answer session, where those attending can seek expert advice and guidance on their own specific problems in relation to machinery safety.

Time will also be provided for informal discussion.

Throughout the sessions, a practical approach to CE Marking and PUWER is adopted, with emphasis being given not only to the problems associated with machinery safety, but also to developing reasonable, realistic and cost-effective solutions.

The Laidler Associates Machinery Safety Workshops are one-day events, with refreshments and lunch provided.

The next dates and locations are: Solihull, Ramada Hotel, 14 September; Bolton, Ramada Hotel, 15 September; Newbury, Ramada Hotel, 19 October; Solihull, Ramada Hotel, 20 October; Bolton, Ramada Hotel, 16 November; and Solihull, Ramada Hotel, 17 November.

Further details, including a registration form, can be found on the company’s website.

Early booking for the events is advised as space is limited.
