Machinery safety training- Pilz Automation Technology

Pilz Automation Technology has updated and added to its range of machinery safety courses to reflect the latest changes in legislation, and has published a new booklet and schedule for 2010.

The company has introduced a new course — ‘The New Machinery Directive’ — which, it says, will provide an insight into how machine manufacturers and end users are affected by new Directive 2006/42/EC. It describes the compliance processes, and includes advice on EN 954-1 and EN ISO 13849-1. Further courses have been updated to address specific aspects of the new Directive and Standards.

Pilz says its current range of machinery safety courses has evolved from more than 20 years of in-house expertise not only in training but also in the practical application of standards by Pilz engineers and consultants. The courses can therefore offer practical insights and solutions in addition to covering the essentials of current legislation, says the company.  

Two types of course are offered: those relating to regulations and standards, and others that are specific to Pilz machinery safety products. All of the scheduled courses take place at the Pilz training facilities in Corby, but additional courses can be organised at companies’ own premises, or other convenient locations.
