From February 2013 Pilz, together with TÜV NORD, will be offering the international training programme CMSE – Certified Machinery Safety Expert.
Increased demands due to changes in legislation, the rising level of automation and demanding technologies all need intelligent safety strategies that can be implemented internationally. Companies must ensure that their relevant personnel have the knowledge required to make informed decisions about machinery safety.
Drawing on extensive experience and knowledge of machinery safety, CMSE has been specifically developed by Pilz to provide expert-level training on an international basis. The course is certified by TÜV NORD, enabling those who complete the training to demonstrate their competence through an internationally recognised qualification with independent certification.
The CMSE course is primarily aimed at design engineers, project engineers, safety engineers and development engineers from the field of automation technology, as well as maintenance engineers and industrial engineers.
Divided into five modules, the course includes the following topics:
- Safety Legislation
- Machinery Standards and Regulations
- Risk Assessment
- Occupational Health and Safety
- Safety Systems and Electrical Safety
- Functional Safety: Safety Control, Pneumatic and Hydraulic Systems
Pilz will run the courses from its UK office in Corby and they are currently scheduled for the following dates in 2013:
- February 25–28
- April 15–19
- June 24–27
- August 19–22
