Laidler Associates will launch the latest version of its Risk Management software system on Stand 10 at Health and Safety 2010 – South.

The software gives up-to-the-minute guidance on risk assessments for the working environment, CE marking to the Machinery Directive and Puwer 98.

The Risk Management software system simplifies and speeds the process of assessment, as well as ensuring that no vital steps are missed.

The latest version has been updated to cover the requirements of the new Machinery Directive, 2006/42/EC, compliance with which became mandatory on 29 December 2009.

Other enhancements include an option for users to decide whether they work to ISO EN 13849-1 or EN954-1 for the safety of machinery and an on-disk copy of the Health and Safety Executive’s new Puwer Approved Code of Practice.

The software covers Puwer 98 requirements and CE marking for machines.

However, it can be readily expanded with extra modules to suit the needs of individual users.

All modules guide the user through the steps necessary for compliance using a question-and-answer approach that ensures every step is properly completed.

The modules then generate detailed reports in a uniform format, thereby making it simple to fully document risk-assessment processes and, in the case of CE marking, to produce the technical files.

If non-compliances are found, a ‘to-do’ list is created, listing items in order of risk.

The system also allows the user to store reports electronically.

The new version of the company’s Risk Management software system runs on Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 on almost any PC.

Laidler Associates has announced a series of free access training dates for 2010.

Machinery safety workshops, covering the new Machinery Directive, will take place on 13 April in Newbury; 29 June in Solihull; 19 October in Scotland; and 16 November in Bolton.
