HSL: Machinery Risk Assessment Essentials – Buxton, 28 Mar 2017

Book Course

HSL is to run a 1 day course on Machinery Series – Machinery Risk Assessment Essentials.

28 March 2017


The ability to carry out a detailed machinery risk assessment
has, for some time, been a key skill required under the Management
of Health and Safety at Work Regs. Machinery risk assessment is
also now explicitly required by the Supply of Machinery (Safety)
Regulations 2008. However many people still struggle to know what
is suitable and sufficient to satisfy these regulations.

This training course gives delegates practical hands-on
experience of conducting a machinery risk assessment using
structured techniques which demystify the process given in BS EN
ISO 12100: 2010.
This course assumes a basic level of understanding of machinery
safety such as that given in the machinery safety basics course
that takes place on the previous day. Anyone who also needs a
thorough understanding of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment
Regs should take this course in combination with the Machinery
Safety Basics course held on the previous day. Anyone who needs a
thorough understanding of the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regs,
should take this course in combination with the designing and
selecting safe machinery course held on the following day.

Course includes

  • What is the difference between hazard and risk and other
  • Hazard Identification process and techniques
  • Risk Estimation process and techniques
  • Risk evaluation, what does ALARP mean in practice
  • Assessment, handling and control of hazardous substances
  • Reasonably foreseeable misuse, an introduction to human
  • Machine interventions
  • Risk assessment practice

Who should attend?

This course is aimed primarily at machinery users, maintenance
engineers, designers and project engineers who need to learn how to
carry out risk assessment of existing machinery in use or new
machinery in the process of being specified, supplied or under
development. This course will also be of benefit to safety
professionals who are familiar with the concepts but need to know
how machinery risk assessment differs from other workplace safety
or risk assessments.


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
