Machinery Risk Assessment

Are you undertaking Machinery Risk Assessments correctly?

Is your company at Risk?

The ability to carry out risk assessments is now a statutory requirement under the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008.

Companies are expected to carry out machinery risk assessments not only when new equipment is designed, but also for existing plant that is in daily use and particularly before machinery is modified.

Many people are used to task-based risk assessments, but are unsure how to carry out the kind of detailed risk assessment that is required for machinery, process plant and assemblies of equipment.

This course is intended for both engineers who want to learn how to carry out risk assessments and safety professionals who are familiar with the concepts. They need to learn how machinery risk assessment differs from other assessment techniques.

This training day provides practical hands-on experience of machinery risk assessment using structured techniques based on European standards.
