Other available dates:

email us to book

Introduction

Control systems for machinery are often required to perform safety-related functions. There are regulatory requirements for these safety-related control systems and established approaches for dealing with their design which are laid out in European Standards. This course will benefit delegates responsible for specifying and designing safety related control circuits which comply with the requirements of the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008 (Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC) and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations. The course concentrates mainly on the approach laid down in EN ISO 13849 parts 1 and 2 and applies the requirements of the standard to a worked example. Other relevant standards such as EN 62061 are also referenced.

Course includes

  • Control system requirements of the Machinery Directive and PUWER
  • Safety integrity levels, performance levels, categories, what they are what they aren't and the difference between them
  • Worked example of a circuit design
  • Demonstration of interlocking and other safety devices
  • CPD Logo

Who should attend?

Please note that this course requires engineering knowledge. It will suit 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 / assemblies.

Venue

The course will be run at the HSE Science and Research Centre 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.
