Machinery Series - PUWER

Book Course

05 September 2022

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
  • Hands-on practice evaluating the safety of machinery and suitability of guards
  • The effects of Brexit and the use of the UKCA mark

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.
