Machinery series: PUWER – Buxton, 9 May 2016

Book Course

HSL is to run a 1 day course on Machinery Series – PUWER.

9 May 2016

Introduction

Machinery is used in many sectors to fabricate, handle and
package industrial and consumer products. Everyone who works with
machinery, whether directly or indirectly, need to understand the
basics of machinery safety but not everyone needs to know all the
details relating to the design. This course covers those activities
regulated by the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations
(PUWER) and provides delegates with a thorough knowledge of this
legislation.  The course will also give practical advice on
how to evaluate the safety of existing machines and how to measure
and evaluate noise and vibration risks. This course can be taken in
combination with the machinery risk assessment essentials course
that takes place on the following day.

Course includes

  • Provision and use of work equipment regulations
  • Choice of guards and guard dimensions
  • Introduction to machinery safety standards
  • Machine Modifications allowable under PUWER
  • Use of control systems and impact of failures
  • Measurement, evaluation and control of noise
  • Measurement, evaluation and control of hand-arm vibration
  • Hands-on practice evaluating the safety of machinery and
    suitability of guards

Who should attend?

This course is aimed primarily at machinery users, maintenance
engineers, safety officers and project engineers who may find
themselves responsible for purchasing machinery or needing to make
minor modifications to improve the efficiency or change the use of
existing machinery. This course would also benefit anyone who needs
a thorough understanding of the provision and use of work equipment
regulations.

Venue

The course will be run at the HSL laboratory in the spa town of
Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and has good
links to mainline train stations and Manchester International
Airport.
