On Tuesday 31st January Leuze will be hosting its next free to attend ‘Introduction to Machine Safety’ training workshop at the offices of the HMK Direct in Congleton, East Cheshire – the first time one of these workshops have been held in the North West.

Kevin Ellison, the presenter and technical support engineer at Leuze electronic said, “We have had a wide variety of people travel to our previous workshops at our office in St Neots, including people from as far away as Cornwall and Aberdeen. The majority however have been from companies close to our office and so I am looking forward to meeting new people by taking the show on the road so to speak.”

MD of Leuze electronic, Mark Weymouth, added, “The Machine Safety market is complicated by some consultants who over complicate the issues and create fear, and some suppliers who treat machine safety as a commodity product. These sessions are designed to show a different middle-way, with Leuze offering high performance products that are easy to install and use, combined with the expertise of Leuze and an automation expert like HMK Direct to support customers on their applications.”

Topics covered at the workshop include IS EN 13849, CE , and PUWER requirements, current and forthcoming legislation, standards and their implications, machine safety inspection?and safety components. Free tools and resources from Leuze electronic are also available.
