Training - CE Marking Training Courses for Industrial Machinery (Level 2)
Date 09-09-2019
Time 09:00 - 17:00
Location Tamworth, Staffordshire

Introduction
The Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC is implemented by the Supply of Machinery Regulations 2008. This puts a duty on the responsible persons to follow a conformity assessment procedure. The responsible person will be the manufacturer of the machinery or partly completed machinery. 1) The manufacturer is a person who designs or manufactures machinery or partly completed machinery: a. With a view to its being placed on the market under that person’s own name or trademark; or b. For that person’s own use in an EEA state; or 2) If there is no such person, the person who places that machinery or partly completed machinery on the market or puts it into service;
The CE Marking of Industrial Machines Level 2 is an appropriate means to support competency in the conformity assessment of industrial machines. The arrangements put in place for this purpose are the conformity assessment management systems and these are an essential aspect of achieving and maintaining conformity with community requirements (CE marking).

Who is it aimed at?
Our CE Marking courses are recommended for designers, integrators, modifiers and those involved in pre-purchase auditing of machines. It is particularly important for those responsible for managing the conformity assessment process and moderating or guiding others.

What are the learning outcomes?
1. Understand and apply appropriate technical terms and definitions in accordance with the Machinery Directive 2006/ EC.
2. Understand how to establish a design risk assessment (DRA) procedure.
3. Identify the correct EN standards for industry best practice. 4. Demonstrate and evidence compliance against the Essential Health and Safety Requirements (EHSRs) and common EN standards as a presumption of conformity.

What are the benefits?
Your knowledge of the conformity assessment procedure will allow you adapt to different scenarios to ensure it continues to correctly document your machine’s compliance with the machinery directive. In addition, you will recognise common non-compliances for more complex scenarios and have a good level of knowledge regards the supporting standards.

Understand when a PUWER Inspection is required, what the scope of inspection should be, and what the limits are when making changes to the machine.
Use examples to complete a simulated inspection of a machine including hazard identification.
Complete risk estimation individually and as a team.
Apply a consistent rationale on Reasonably Practicable vs. Practicable.
Dangerous moving parts are governed by ‘where practicable’ the rest of the ACOP is where ‘reasonably practicable’. We will show you what this means in practice and some of the inconsistencies in comparison to the CE marking conformity process.

What are the benefits?

By completing a simulated inspection, you will get a feel for carrying out a real PUWER inspection.
Understand when to schedule in a PUWER inspection and WHY.
You will be able to ensure that statutory requirements for inspection are met and that the risks on work equipment are identified and controlled in line with best practice and the law. This may avoid an accident in the future but will also provide evidence of systematic risk assessment and risk reduction which, in the event of a claim following an accident, would drastically reduce your company’s contributory negligence.
