Pilz, a leading supplier of safe automation and safety services, has signalled that safety is high on the agenda for manufacturing companies this year with an unprecedented demand for its training courses.
In addition to its highly respected MachineSAFE training course, Pilz now offers the internationally recognised Certified Machinery Safety Expert (CMSE) course.
Introduced to Australia in 2013, the four-day course is a collaboration between Pilz and TÜV NORD and has set new standards for certified training in the field of machinery safety.
Fifty people attended the course in Australia last year with 80 per cent passing the examination and gaining the certification.
One of those participants was Ben Johnson, Senior Mechatronics Engineer at Cochlear Ltd Australia, who highly recommends this course to anyone who works with industrial machinery in any capacity.
"I completed the Certified Machine Safety Expert Course (CMSE) in 2013 and found the course to be a comprehensive training suite in all facets of machine safety, he said. “It was clear from the outset that all of the trainers had immense experience in the field through the clarity and depth to which they could explain each of the topics and even quote lines from the standard without any reference!”
Ben said one of the best aspects of the training was the many practical examples which were given in addition to the discussions within the group relating the content to current work.
“Unlike many other courses I have completed I am actually using what I have learnt in my day to day work,” he said.
During the course, Pilz trains delegates to the level of qualified machinery safety experts, who will then be in a position to apply their knowledge not just domestically but internationally. Divided into five modules with lectures, discussions and workshops, the course covers the key fundamentals of this field.
This year, Pilz has updated its popular MachineSAFE courses and these now include more international content as well as being structured so that the Advanced course now picks up from where Introduction course finishes.
Pilz Managing Director, Scott Moffat, said training appears to be high on the agenda in 2014 with many bookings already received.
“It’s very heartening to see companies investing in training. This can only lead to higher levels of safety,” said Mr Moffat.
Four new CMSE courses will be held across Australasia in 2014 with the first courses taking place in March in Brisbane and Auckland.
Courses in Melbourne and Sydney will follow in May. Places are filling fast so book now to avoid disappointment.
