Our seminar used the example of a 'complex assembly' of two machines to make one machine - a drum crusher which first cuts away the ends of the drum, then crushes it in a press - to illustrate all facets of machine safety compliance.
Jon Severn of Machinebuilding.net, '...an excellent range of speakers covering a wide range of machinery safety topics - it was particularly useful to have someone from the HSL (part of HSE) providing their perspective. The speakers were all knowledgeable experts, with their presentations sticking rigidly to the subject of machinery safety and not drifting into sales pitches. There were ample opportunities for questions, both in the seminar sessions and on a one-to-one basis during the breaks. In addition the venue was a good choice, and the small charge represented exceptionally good value for money'
Dr Richard Garrett of Allen Vanguard, 'I would like to thank the presenters and organisers for such a well planned and interesting day...I look forward to attending future seminars that the Machinery Safety Alliance may organise in the future.'
Roger de Toney of Deal Intact Ltd, 'A useful overview that put a number of issues regarding machinery safety into perspective...will be useful for future activities associated with risk assessment, equipment purchasing, and providing industry guidance.'
Neil Catton of G's Group Holdings, 'Excellent educational detail, very helpful revision from knowledgable experts'
Keith Mander of Avanti Conveyors, 'Excellent organisation and composition'
Peter Garrett of EEF, 'Good presentation, wide range of related topics covered at a good level - excellent seminar'
Nicholas Bartmanis of EEF, 'Very informative, impressed by the subject knowledge of each of the presenters'
Neil Procter of British Gypsum, 'Good intro to set the scene, excellent mix of knowledgeable speakers, very useful...ideal venue'
