Machinery Series - Designing & Specifying Safety Related Control Systems
HSL is to run a 1 day course on Machinery Series - Designing & Specifying Safety Related Control Systems.
19th September 2013
Control systems for machinery, whether electrical, pneumatic,
hydraulic or combinations they are often required to perform
safety-related functions. There are regulatory requirements for
these control systems and established approaches for dealing with
their design, which are laid out in European Standards. This course
will help delegates understand how to specify and design safety
related control circuits which comply with the requirements of both
the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008 (Machinery
Directive 2006/42/EC) and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment
Regulations. It explains how these, other regulations and standards
are applied to real-life situations, through the use of examples of
how to and how not to do it. The course provides methods and
templates developed at HSL to help engineers comply with the
relevant requirements effectively and efficiently. The course
concentrates mainly on the approach laid down in ISO 13849-1:2006,
but also gives objective advice on the relevance of other standards
such as EN954-1:1997, ISO 62061:2006 amongst others.
- Relevant standards including ISO 13849-1:2006, EN 954-1:1997
and ISO 62061:2006
- Safety integrity levels, performance levels, categories, what
they are what they aren't and the difference between them
- Impact of human reliability
- Circuit design
- Demonstration of interlocking and other safety devices
- Potential user interference and misuse of safety devices
Who should attend?
Electrical, control and project engineers, whether they be
original equipment manufacturers or users involved in specifying
control systems on customized machinery / assemblies or
significantly modifying control systems on existing machinery /
The course will be run at the HSL laboratory in the spa town of
Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and has good
links to mainline train stations and Manchester International
The cost of the course is £395 per person (includes course
notes, lunch and refreshments).
Please note the invoice option is not available within 4
weeks of the course date.
