Machinery Safety Alliance announces 2014 seminar programmeThe Machinery Safety Alliance has announced its 2014 seminar programme, visiting the Magna Science Adventure Centre in Sheffield on 14 May, the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester (Salford Quays) on 3 September, and the Haynes International Motor Museum in Sparkford, Somerset, on 21 October. The seminars arranged for 2014 will bring to the audience the very latest in machine safety legislation and requirements to meet the Machinery Directive accompanied by practical examples on the application of machinery safety equipment.
Now in its third year the Machinery Safety Alliance consists of a collective of leading companies in the field of machinery safety solutions. The five companies participating in the Alliance - Werma, Pliz, Festo, Fortress Interlocks and Troax - are each leading figures in their own particular field of expertise but the programme is carefully designed not to give a "hard sell" on any particular product, rather to "debunk" the often complex and confusing directive which governs standards applied to machinery safety.
The team cover subjects from diverse fields of machine safety technology - physical guarding, interlocking, control, pneumatics, indication, software and signalisation - and offer as all-encompassing advice as possible on compliance with the Machinery Directive. There is also a small exhibition area where delegates can see for themselves examples of the solutions having been covered in the presentations as well as giving the opportunity for further discussion with the specialists from the Alliance.
The venues have been carefully selected to offer delegates a chance to look around the host exhibition which always proves popular and makes for a welcome break from the conference programme. Participation in the seminar will also give delegates access to a wide range of subjects held on the Alliance website and the opportunity to keep updated on new changes to the Machinery Directive as and when they may happen.
