Risk Assessment Workshops


Risk assessment is a process manufacturers use to evaluate their equipment for potential health and safety hazards before a hazard can cause an accident or incident. Many end users now require risk assessments as part of the procurement process.
Risk assessment is required for compliance to the ANSI/PMMI B155.1-2011 standard and for compliance with the EU machinery directive 2006/42/EC. Therefore, PMMI has expanded the scope of the PMMI risk assessment training program to include the important issues that generate the most questions from PMMI members.


The course outline includes:


  • Global standards – why harmonization is important and what standards to use?
  • Risk assessment basics – what it is, why to do it, the iterative process, how to do risk assessment and when are you done?
  • Hands on risk assessment using Packsafe/designSafe® software.
  • Legal implications of risk assessment – new equipment, legacy equipment.
  • How to deploy risk assessment?

EU machinery directive 2006/42/EC


  • Essential health and safety requirements in Annex I of the machinery directive – what are they, how to meet them?
  • Declaration of conformity and incorporation – what directives and standards should you list?
  • What is the difference between a “person authorized” and a “authorized representative”?
  • What is the role of a notified body?
  • EN 954-1 and ISO 13849-1 – what to use, how to calculate performance levels.
  • EMC compliance – what to do?
