Machinery Safety Training Courses – New Dates

Machinery safety training course

Protect people and boost profits by demystifying machinery safety.

“Introduction to Machinery Safety: Learn how to balance time, trouble and money to achieve good levels of machinery safety.”

Your business relies on its machines and people to remain profitable. More importantly, the interaction of your people with your machines must be safe to ensure the levels of motivation and availability needed to maintain good productivity.

Our latest machinery safety training course explains how CE marking of machinery and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) work together, how they fit in the overall workplace safety landscape, and how organisations can assess and manage the risks associated with work equipment/machinery.

Who should attend?

If you are a safety duty holder, a manager with responsibility for the use or maintenance of machinery, or someone tasked with maintaining (or making improvements or modifications) to machinery then this course is designed for you.

What will I learn?

During this highly practical and intensive two day course you will learn how to:

  • Carry out machinery specific risk assessments, identify hazard types and prioritise solutions.
  • Identify the main legislative requirements (UK regulations and EU Directives). associated with machinery.
  • Explain how PUWER fits within the overall UK legislative framework and summarise its legal requirements.
  • Choose appropriate EN standards for common machinery scenarios.

How will I be assessed?

We will assess your knowledge by considering your interaction during the sessions with a short written test at the end which is nothing to worry about our expert trainers will be helping you to ensure you are confident.

What will I get at the end?

When you’ve completed we’ll send you a certificate of attendance and completion and an individual logon to Finch Academy giving access to additional materials.

As a previous course attendee, we will also send you regular updates on amendments to standards and legislation which can also be supported by the knowledge of Finch experts who might help you in the future.
