Compact and specialist seminars

 

Our compact seminars are tailored precisely to your requirements. They can convey only elementary knowledge due to the degree of complexity of the topics. They are therefore targeted at those seeking initial familiarisation due to a job change or having recently joined a company or at those wishing to brush up on their existing knowledge.

Unlike compact seminars, specialist seminars go into significant detail. For this type of seminar therefore, participants should at least have basic existing knowledge in the appropriate subject area.

Prerequisites for participation

For participation prerequisites, please see the details in the seminar descriptions listed below.

Our compact and specialist seminars are one-day events. If your company would like more than one person to participate in a training course, please ask us for a volume discount. If you would like a group of six or more participants to undertake training in your company, there is also the option to arrange the training course as an in-house event. We look forward to hearing from you!

As a mechanical engineer, your core remit is in the development of highly modern machines and production systems, while as an operator you’re forever trying to upgrade your plants in an effort to keep pace with continuously increasing market requirements.

CE labelling must be applied to machinery if brought to market new in the European Single Market or where existing machinery undergoes significant modification.

Objective of advanced training

You will learn the individual steps of the CE certification process. You also learn a lot about the structure, content and requirements of directives and when these are to be applied. You will also be familiarised with various standards, and taught whether and how these are to be applied and how their requirements are to be implemented.

You will also learn where the borders lie between CE labelling and occupational safety and why these subject areas should be considered separately from each other.

Seminar content

  • Basic principles of CE labelling
  • Legal principles or “what happens if something happens”
  • Researching and applying guidelines and standards
  • Risk assessment and hazard assessment
  • Basic principles of functional safety
  • Machine conversion and its consequences

ce_labelling_safety_assessmentManufacturers and operators of machines are obliged to design their machines and systems safely. This is called for by the machinery directive and the guidelines on the use of equipment. No doubt you do plenty right in your day to day work intuitively, but what do you do if something happens? When making a decision about safety equipment, you must always weigh up whether or not the equipment will sufficiently minimise the risks present in reality.

Objective of advanced training

While the compact seminar on CE labelling focusses on the procedure and its constituent parts, in the machine safety seminar we focus our attention on the application and constitution of standards. You are taught for instance the criteria by which protective equipment is selected and adapted to your requirements. The principle focus is on selecting active opto-electronic protective devices and their use in accordance with relevant standards. Using various standards you will learn how to choose, design and verify the best protective equipment.

We will also clarify the extent to which your choice of protective equipment must be documented as well as the help available on the market.

Seminar content

  • Brief legal introduction
  • EN ISO 12100:2010
  • Hazard and risk
  • Classifying and preventing risk
  • Choosing protective equipment –  the 3-stage process
  • Applying standards
  • Validating, verifying, documenting

Benefits

From practice, for practice. Our experienced instructors will answer all of your questions and set you well on your way with numerous examples to work with. After completing training, you will be capable of making machines and systems safe in compliance with applicable legislation and of compiling the necessary documentation. The subject matter taught on the course will simplify your day to day work sustainably.

Course completion

Participants will be issued a corresponding certificate and training documentation in digital format.

Requirements for participation

The training course has been specially developed by mechanical engineering experts for the following persons:

  • Designers
  • Project managers
  • Technical writers
  • All persons involved in or likely to be involved in safeguarding machinery.

Specialist seminars

ce labelling webinarParts 1 and 2 of European standard EN ISO 13849 describe the determination and validation of the Performance Level (PL) of technical regulation protective functions. The component also termed “functional safety” in the manufacture of machines is one of the most comprehensive parts of risk assessment.

The Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the German Social Accident Insurance has developed the SISTEMA software wizard for assessing safety-related machine controllers in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849. The software is free of charge, very comprehensive and now in wide use.

In this specialist seminar, we deal with technical regulation protective functions, their development and PL validation using SISTEMA.

Objective of advanced training

You will learn and be able to apply and classify terminology from standard 13849. You will also have no trouble designing protective functions using block diagrams. You will master SISTEMA and be able to validate its safety functions in no time with the software.

Seminar content

  • Introduction to DIN EN ISO13849-1
  • Modelling of safety functions
  • Definition of component data
  • Structure and application of SISTEMA
