UCPD (University Certificate of Professional Development) for Machinery Safety Training Course

Face to face Training5 DaysAdvancedOnsite Seminar or Virtual Classroom

This course is for a 5 day University Certified Professional Development (UCPD) training on European (EU & UK) Machinery Safety requirements. It explains the legislative requirements regarding the supply of machinery in Europe, largely based on the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. It discusses the scope of the legislation, the certification procedures and the essential health and safety requirements (EHSRs) and introduces the associated European standards.

Course Testimonial: 'This was a very informative training session that covered all bases with the right amount of detail and supporting info. The training experience was direct and interesting, the trainer was easy to speak to and could be asked questions at any time. All-in a good experience and would recommend.' (Introduction to Machinery Safety Training Course)

Those involved with the safety-related design of machinery, including those who:
  • design machinery
  • upgrade machinery
  • integrate/create assemblies of machinery
  • create subsystems for machinery
  • make modifications to the safety-related design of machinery.
This includes, design engineers, project managers, engineering managers, quality managers.
It also includes those involved in all technologies; mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, (safety-related) software.

This is a course leading to the award of a University Certificate of Professional Development (UCPD) on the technical requirements for electrical and mechanical engineering, to ensure compliance with European Directives and UK legislation on machinery safety.

The course looks at the range of applicable standards and guidelines and considers the choice of techniques and equipment that are desirable to achieve requirements of European legislation. The module comprises directed self-study, keynote lectures with tutorials and a follow up project.
