Are you undertaking risk assessments correctly? Are you putting your company at risk? The ability to carry out risk assessments is now a requirement in many walks of life. However, what is a suitable and sufficient risk assessment that will satisfy the Health & Safety Authority?

Companies are expected to carry out machinery risk-assessments not only when new equipment is designed, but also for existing plant that is in daily use and particularly before machinery is modified.

Many people are used to task-based risk assessments, but are unsure how to carry out the kind of detailed risk assessment that is required for machinery, process plant and assemblies of equipment.

The Machinery Risk Assessment Seminar is set to take place in the Carlton Hotel, Old Airport Road, Dublin Airport, Co Dublin on 12 October from 9:30am.

This course is intended for both engineers who want to learn how to carry out risk assessment and safety professionals who are familiar with the concepts but need to learn how machinery risk assessment differs from other assessment techniques.

This training day gives delegates practical hands-on experience of machinery risk assessment using structured techniques that are based on European standards.

This one-day seminar seeks to explain:

  • Background to machinery safety;
  • How machinery safety fits into the health and safety framework;
  • Provision and use of work equipment regulations (PUWER);
  • Risk-assessment methods;
  • BS EN ISO 12100:2010;
  • Typical hazards;
  • Practical risk-assessments.
