Webinar: Reducing Operational Risk by Managing Hazardous Machine Energy

FREE event

 

Despite substantial improvements in machinery safety and the introduction of robust legislation, machinery-related serious accidents continue to occur in the workplace and represent a significant risk to employee health and safety and business operations.

A common cause, and often under-utilised risk reduction opportunity, is the physical isolation of hazardous machine energy (e.g. electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, chemical, gravitational,) to prevent unexpected machine energization or start-up during maintenance or repair tasks.

This webinar will introduce the key operational risks, legal requirements and challenges, providing an outline roadmap for successfully implementing hazardous machine energy management in a production environment.

Target Audience:

  • Senior/board Management
  • Operations Management
  • Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Teams
  • Health, Safety and Environmental Managers/Advisors
  • Union Representatives
