MILFORD, Pa., Feb. 6, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Machine Safety Specialists (MSS), a subsidiary of Clarion Safety Systems, will host a live, online training course for machine safety and risk assessment training this February. MSS, through its TÜV certified safety engineers, provides clear guidance and detailed answers for OSHA machine guarding, risk assessment, functional safety, and safety training needs. Clarion Safety is a leading designer and manufacturer of safety labels, signs, and tags – and provides services for comprehensive machine safety, compliance, and risk reduction.
Enrollment is currently open for this two-day, instructor-led training event which is designed to help participants improve safety in their facility by increasing awareness of modern safety standards and enabling increased use of engineering controls for risk reduction methods. The course takes place on February 27th and 28th, 2024 from 12:30 to 4:30 PM EST. It's intended for technical personnel (engineers, technicians, maintenance personnel, operators), safety professionals, and business leaders. Topics covered will include:
- Machine safeguarding
- Machine risk assessment
- Control reliability, functional safety, and safety interlocks
- Effective alternatives for hazardous energy control (LOTO alternatives)
- Liability and legal concerns
- Applicable OSHA, ANSI, NFPA, RIA, and ISO standards
One of their most requested topics is their "How to Perform a Risk Assessment" module, which details why risk assessments are needed, risk assessment systems, risk factors (severity, exposure, and probability), and how to use risk assessment spreadsheet tools.
There is also an option for participants to add on a third day of training on February 29th with specialized technical break-out sessions for a deeper understanding of the subject material. These sessions go more in-depth on technical topics (such as industrial robot and cobot safety, advanced functional safety and control reliability, and safety requirements for bypassing guards) and allow for focused Q&A time. As the previous course participant list grows, the MSS team would also like to note that anyone who has attended a training course led by them in the past is eligible to register for the day of advanced technical training and Q&A sessions.
The course will be instructed by Ken Hackworth, PE, FS Eng. (TÜV Rheinland #12058/16). With over 30 years of experience in industrial controls and functional safety systems, Hackworth is a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) and certified Functional Safety Engineer, as well as a member of ANSI B11 and the American Society of Safety Professionals.
