Plant & Works Engineering
An accident in the workplace is not the time to find out if you have correct machine safety procedures in place
Published:  24 August, 2021

Machinery and manufacturing equipment safety specialists, Euchner (UK), is hosting a series of training events designed to ensure that company directors, health and safety professionals, operational, maintenance, HR personnel and other managers understand key legislation and their responsibilities surrounding safety in the workplace.

‘Machine Safety for Operational Personnel’

• Reading: 22nd September 2021

• Leeds: 20th October 2021

Too often, occupational risk assessments undertaken on a manufacturing site do not include the specific legislation related to the machinery itself. The course covers this legislation affecting machinery and plant, the standards framework in place to ensure safe equipment and the measures an organisation should take to ensure equipment being purchased and subsequently used meets all the statutory requirements – ensuring a safe working environment for all employees.

Euchner’s UK&I country manager, David Dearden, explains:

“Frequently there is a gap between the traditional occupational H&S function and the machinery safety responsibility - we see a great number of risk assessments overlooking key standards including those relating to the safety related controls. Euchner developed these courses to give a greater understanding of the requirements for machinery safety in a clear and concise way.”

Delegates will understand the importance of machine safety in a business, how to bridge the gap between machinery and occupational health and safety, and the responsibilities surrounding machinery safety for both new and existing equipment.

Managing machine safety through existing risk assessment processes and key legislation surrounding the ‘Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations and Use of Work Equipment Regulations are covered in detail.

‘Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER)’

• Glasgow: 29th September 2021

• Reading: 3rd November 2021

• Birmingham: 17th November 2021

This course is designed to equip delegates with a full understanding of their legal obligations under PUWER and how they can apply the legislation in the workplace.

Managers, supervisors, maintenance personnel, engineers, and other professionals who have responsibility for safety around work equipment and require an introduction to PUWER regulations and machinery risk assessment will benefit greatly from attending this course.

Knowledge received on the day will include an understanding of PUWER requirements, how legislation affects you and your organisation, an overview of the assessment documentation and machine safety, control and modification under PUWER.

Each course costs £295 per delegate and this includes comprehensive course notes and certificate.

Euchner is a leader in machinery safety engineering training and estimates that on average, 610,000 workers are injured in workplace accidents in the UK annually. This equates to over 2,300 injuries per working day and the cost to the UK in relation to these accidents in 2020 is estimated to be more than £5.6bn.
