Workshop - Design Risk Assessment (DRA) of Industrial Machines for CE Marking
Date 15-02-2019
Time 10:00 - 17:00
Location Tamworth, Staffordshire

This one day workshop will give you the reasoning and method behind design risk
assessment (DRA) for industrial machines. Design risk assessment is a legal requirement
when certifying or modifying machines and is an essential step in achieving/maintaining
conformity with Essential Health and Safety Requirements.

Learning Outcomes:
1) The basic legal requirements applicable to design risk assessment (DRA)
2) How to select appropriate protective measures for industrial machines in line with BS EN
12100.
2) A simple method for documenting your design risk assessments and guidance on
appropriate management systems to meet your legal requirements.
3) A high level of confidence on specifying change to existing or new machines.

Workshop - Level 2 – PUWER Assessor Training
Date 18-02-2019
Time 09:00 - 17:00
Location Tamworth, Staffordshire

This training is appropriate for anyone looking for a combination of classroom and supervised practical experience.

Typically this course is attended by engineers being asked to complete PUWER inspections as a part of their role. However, it can also be of great interest to managers, safety professionals and OEMs. This course can be adapted to focus on key issues or types of machine / work equipment.

The learning outcomes -

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.
