1 or 2 Day Training Course
Our courses offer an excellent opportunity to learn about the requirements and best practices that are associated with machine safety. Held in a relaxed and supportive environment, your staff will leave with all the knowledge needed to create a safer working environment for all.
In these courses we cover:
- Legislative responsibilities
- WorkSafe’s role in the industry
- Risk and hazard assessment (including identifying, documenting and minimising any risks or hazards)
- Machine guarding requirements
- And more
Our two-day course allows your staff to engage in open discussions about machine safety and guarding, as well as undertake practical examples.
Risk assessments are vital to machine safety. They supply the basis for obtaining a level of risk reduction. Many activities carried out by operators and maintenance staff represent a high risk, with completing this we often find the best isolation, and or cost savings that can be achieved.
Accidents are often caused by 1 or multiple factors, this is the reason that Risk assessments need your participation.
Whether the machine is new, or existing, to start the process, risk assessments are required.
By understanding the risks on the machinery, we can then work with you to provide methods, and or solutions for risk reduction, that are both economical and meet the requirements to the level of risk ascertained. In some cases simple mechanical safety can meet the requirements, but in others a safety related control system is required to meet the standards.
Once the above is completed a validation is required to ensure that the above actually meets relevant standards and performs as Is the defined in the risk assessment and risk reduction/design concepts. In simple terms is the machine safeguarding correctly implemented?
Is the safety related control system of your machinery designed and implemented in accordance with your safety requirements specification?
These validations are designed to meet relevant standards ie AS4024 or international standards ISO 13849, IEC 62061 and IEC 61508.
The validation is essential to prove that your machinery is safe.
