Quickly becoming a very popular course -- 100% positive feedback rating!
With more and more ANSI standards now requiring a risk assessment for machinery, performing a risk assessment for machinery is now commonplace. And a
well-performed Risk Assessment can be extremely beneficial to a company's bottom line -- but a poorly done Risk Assessment can be worse
than none at all. Learn how to perform a Risk Assessment per the latest official standards.
The training seminar will cover the OSHA and ANSI requirements to properly conduct a risk assessment for machines and equipment
The objectives for the seminar is:
Understand the risk assessment process
Identify different hazards during the risk assessment process
Understand ways of creating customized risk assessment templates
Do a practical implementation of risk assessment
Understand the documentation requirements for risk assessment
As ANSI and Internatinal ISO machine safety standards aregrowing in importance, design engineers, application engineers and system integrators
involved in machine safety should become knowledgeable in the requirements of Risk Assessment, per ANSI B11.0 (2010) and ISO 12100 (2010).
The objective of this risk assessment training is to present the risk assessment process as a necessary step in the design process.
The perceived complexities are now simplified with examples on how to identify different hazards, define machine limits, assess the risk,
and provide risk reduction techniques. There will be various xercises based on practical examples and actual risk assessments. This training
will follow the risk evaluation method outlined in ANSI B11.0 (2010), with the aid of pre-completed templates and various real life examples.
Upon completion of this seminar, participants should have a significantly improved understanding of the OSHA and ANSI standards for
risk assessment that apply to the type of machines and equipment. In addition, participants should be able to identify different hazards
during the risk assessment process, and understand the implementation of risk assessment per ANSI standards.
