Machinery Safety for Machinery Mechanical Designers


The course aims to teach participants about the following safety-related aspects of machinery:
  • Understand what Directives and standards are, and which ones apply to a given machine.
  • Know about the Machinery Directive and Royal Decrees 1215/97 and 2177/04.
  • Knowledge of the most important safety standards to be considered for the mechanical design of the machine.
  • How do I know if I can modify a machine without making a substantial change to maintain the CE Mark?

Intended for:

  • Machine manufacturers who need an in-depth knowledge of the most important standards affecting the mechanical design of machines.
The course is suitable for technical personnel involved in the machinery mechanical engineering process and/or who validate a layout or have to modify or extend a machine.


Some examples of machinery, partly completed machinery and assemblies of machinery defined in the Machinery Directive are shown below:
