Machinery Safety Workshop

The aim of this workshop is to raise awareness of general machine safety for the user, the manufacturer and the systems integrator.

We cover CE Marking, the Machinery Directive, and PUWER ‘98 using practical examples and discussions of risk assessment and reduction, as defined in BS EN 12100 2010.

Using your questions and input as a guide we will explain how the legal requirements translate into practical solutions and reference other supporting EN standards that could be used to presume conformity.

Entry Requirements

In order to benefit from this machinery directive training the attendees will require the following:

  • Basic understanding of how machinery works in your chosen industry
  • Basic understanding of how machinery is operated and maintained in your chosen industry

Note: Aspects of the conformity assessment procedure for CE marking machines will be completed by more than one individual. At least one of those individuals will have technical competence in mechanical, electrical and control system design.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  1. Understand how CE marking of machines and PUWER relates to you and your company.
  2. The knowledge in industry on machine safety tends to be heavily based on inherited wisdoms. Often this can lead to inaccuracies that can cost you time and money now and in the future. We will discuss using practical examples how CE and PUWER 98 apply to industry and you.
  3. Understand machine safety risk assessments and risk reduction.
  4. Not just a paper exercise. Risk assessment and Risk reduction form the back bone of machine safety and surprisingly the outcomes can different depending on which regulations we are applying. We will use practical examples to demonstrate this and discuss how to go about control measure selection backed by risk assessment correctly.
  5. Identify the key points of machine safety and which engineering activities will trigger the need for risk assessment.
  6. Where are the lines in the sand? Learn when you must complete a risk assessment and which engineering activities should be covered by procedures pointing you to complete them.
  7. Find the correct EN standards for industry best practice.
  8. There are literally hundreds of standards applicable to machine safety. We will identify some of the main safety standards common to most machines and show how they can be used as a part of risk assessment and risk reduction.

The Delegates

This workshop is recommended to those individuals involved in:

  • Operations
  • Maintenance
  • Engineering
  • Health and Safety
  • Risk Assessment and Risk Management
  • Leadership and Management

The content covered is invaluable to any person or company committed to a safe and efficient working environment and is a fantastic way to kick-start a positive safety culture in machine safety.

Where and How

This workshop is held at our Training Centre in Tamworth, Staffordshire. Alternatively if you have more than 10 delegates who wish to attend, then we are happy to deliver it at your site, free of charge (subject to T&C’s).


Teas and Coffees are served at 9:15am. The workshop kicks off at 10am and we normally aim to finish at 4pm.

The Benefits

Your people will be able to ensure that statutory requirements for inspection are met. Also, that new or modified machines are introduced to the workplace with only acceptable residual risks or that other risks are identified and managed.
