Machinery Series - Machinery Directive

Book Course

HSL is to run a 1 day course on Machinery Series - Machinery Directive.

26 April 2017

Introduction

The design, supply and incorporation of machinery into assemblies within the European Economic area is governed by the European Machinery Directive that was significantly amended in 2006. In the UK this directive has been transposed into the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations that came into force at the end of December 2009. This course gives delegates a thorough understanding of this legislation, as revised, as well as the key current European and International safety standards that support the Regulations. Delegates are shown how to build a technical file and have the opportunity to practice assessing conformity to the essential health and safety requirements. The purpose and content of a declaration of conformity and incorporation are explained along with when to use which. The role and process of risk assessment are explained, however delegates who need a more detailed understanding of machinery risk assessment should attend the course on the previous day. An introduction to control system safety and some of the related standards is given. However those delegates who are directly involved in control system design, and need a more thorough understanding of the design of safety related control systems should also attend the course held on the following day.

Course includes

  • Machinery Directive and UK Supply of Machinery (Safety) regulations 2008
  • Assemblies of machines
  • Principles of safety by design
  • Introduction to control system safety
  • Ergonomics in machine design
  • High level access
  • Building a technical file
  • Relevant standards and their use
  • Documentation requirements
  • Hands-on practice of the evaluation and conformity assessment of machinery

Who should attend?

This course is intended primarily for people who design and supply machines and create assemblies of machines. It is also relevant for people who specify and install new machines or assemblies or make significant modifications to existing machines.  The course will also be helpful to anyone who is interested in a detailed understanding of the safety of industrial machinery, the supply of machinery safety regulations as amended.

Venue

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 Airport.
