Machine Safety Training











MPSA’s seminars can help you stay current on changes in industrial safety laws and guidelines. Our seminars focus on current machine guarding and control reliability safety standards, including ANSI, OSHA, NFPA, European norms and CE compliance. Hands-on safety demos are used to reinforce key concepts.

What classes are currently offered?

General Machine Safety

This class is useful to anyone responsible for the design, operation, or maintenance of machines and needs an understanding of legal requirements, risk assessment, types of hazards, the several levels of circuit design, and available types of safety equipment. Learn how they all come together for a complete safety solution.

ISO 13849-1

ISO13849-1 is a global harmonized standard relating to the risk assessment, design, and performance of safety control systems on machinery. This standard is accepted world-wide as the principle safety control design guideline and it represents a major change in the philosophy of hazard analysis and designing safety related parts of machine control systems. This class will provide an overview of the standard as well as ways that you can prepare for its implementation.
