Machinery Series: UK Machinery Regulations

Live Online

30 April 2024

Introduction

This course introduces delegates to the UK Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008, which regulate the design, manufacture and supply of machines, assemblies of machines, partially complete machines and other machinery products in the United Kingdom. It also explains the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, which serves the same purpose in the European Economic Area (EEA).

Learning outcomes

Delegates will be provided with information that will help them to:

  • Understand when the legislation applies to machines, assemblies of machines, partially complete machines and other machinery products
  • Understand the scope of the essential health and safety requirements
  • Understand the principle of safety by design
  • Understand the standards which are relevant to their machines and their use
  • Understand what to put in the instructions for use
  • Know how to build a technical file

What the course will cover

This course is designed to give delegates a thorough understanding of the UK Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008, as well as the key British, European and international safety standards that support the regulations. The essential health and safety requirements of the regulations will be described and delegates will have an opportunity to assess a machine against these requirements. The differences between a Declaration of Conformity and a Declaration of Incorporation are explained and the use of the UKCA and CE marks will be described. Delegates will be shown how to build a technical file and the requirements for instructions for use. The importance of risk assessment is explained, however delegates who need a detailed understanding of machinery risk assessment should attend the "Machinery Series: Risk Assessment Essentials" course.

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 project engineers and others who specify and install new machines or assemblies, or make significant modifications to existing machines.  The course is also relevant for safety professionals who need a detailed understanding of machinery safety and the legislation that controls the supply of machinery in both the UK and the EEA.
