Laidler Associates has announced that it is expanding its range of machinery safety courses to cover both electrical safety and the newer functional safety standards.

The first of the new courses, ‘Electrical machinery safety awareness’, runs for one day and delegates will be given an awareness of the relevant regulations and how standards can be used for compliance.

Delegates will gain an understanding of electrical safety legislation, regulations, standards and terminology.

Entitled ‘Practical electrical machinery safety’, the second course consists of two days, incorporating the first course as the content for day one while, on day two, delegates increase their knowledge base and apply this through a practical assessment.

Delegates will gain the skills and knowledge required to help with the identification of unsafe electrical situations and the methods involved in assessing electrical equipment.

The final course, ‘Electrical machinery safety – including control integrity’, which runs for five days, introduces attendees to the concept of safety-related control circuits.

The course will cover the functional safety standards EN 13849-1 and EN 62061, and demonstrate practical real-life examples of how these standards are used and validated.

The course also includes an introduction to electromagnetic (EMC) compatibility and how this applies in the machinery-safety field.

The five-day course is currently being evaluated by Teesside University with the aim of gaining accreditation alongside the current Laidler University Certificate in European Machine Safety Requirements.
