Guarding & the Safe Use of Machinery

Guarding & the Safe Use of Machinery (1 day workshop)

WorkSafe’s Best Practice Guideline provides a practical solution path for compliance responsibilities when it comes to machinery. However, the assumed competency for engineering and operational staff is problematic and could lead to poor outcomes.

Let us provide you with the basic competency and understanding in an informative one-day training session.

As ACC Thinksafe Workplace Safety Award winners and leading maintenance management practitioners, we know about successful health and safety and engineering management. and we apply our own experience in this inspiring training class.

Attendees are invited to work on their own workplace example during the training.
