Sick - TUV Functional Safety of Machinery Seminar
Sick Machine Safety Training held in Melbourne 28th September - 2nd October 2020
Online pre-training sessions commencing Monday 27th July, 2020 (4 weeks : 1-2hrs per week)
In conjunction with SGS-TÜV Saar, SICK is now offering training toward the qualification of Certified Functional Safety Application Expert in the topic of functional safety of machinery. Those who complete the training should not only satisfy legal requirements relating to functional safety, they will also have the skills to perform substantiated evaluations of machine safety and be familiar with all the steps involved in the process. The training is aimed at engineers, electricians, system integrators and developers, as well as safety officers and those responsible for machinery safety.
The standards regarding Functional Safety as well as the European Machinery Directive and Australian and New Zealand OH&S law, demand that persons and organisations performing responsible (accountable) tasks during the life cycle phase of a machine have to acquire and be able to prove their competency in machinery safety.
Within this training, the requirements for the design as well as the proof of functional safety for machinery applications are described and discussed in detail based on the relevant current standards.
The procedure for the selection of protective devices for machinery in order to achieve the required risk reduction is shown. Examples of safety functions are explained. The main requirements of ISO 13849 and IEC 62061 for the design of safety related parts of machine control systems are presented and application examples illustrating the quantitative assessment of safety functions are discussed.
