Machinery Series - Machinery Risk Assessment Essentials
02 August 2022
The ability to carry out a detailed machinery risk assessment
has, for some time, been a key skill required under the Management
of Health and Safety at Work Regs. Machinery risk assessment is
also now explicitly required by the Supply of Machinery (Safety)
Regulations 2008. However many people still struggle to know what
is suitable and sufficient to satisfy these regulations.
This training course gives delegates practical hands-on
experience of conducting a machinery risk assessment using
structured techniques which demystify the process given in BS EN
ISO 12100: 2010.
This course assumes a basic level of understanding of machinery
safety such as that given in the machinery safety basics course
that takes place on the previous day. Anyone who also needs a
thorough understanding of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment
Regs should take this course in combination with the Machinery
Safety Basics course held on the previous day. Anyone who needs a
thorough understanding of the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regs,
should take this course in combination with the designing and
