HSL to participate in MSA's inaugural 2012 seminar series
01 February 2012
The UK Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL), an agency of the Health & Safety Executive, will open and present at each Machinery Safety Alliance (MSA) seminar in 2012 - adding the perspective of the agency responsible for enforcing UK law on machine safety. Richard Brooks, Machinery Safety Specialist, will represent the UK HSL at each seminar, bringing with him an important and impartial view, based upon the perspective of the HSE inspectors who attend machine safety incidents.
When investigating such incidents, it's apparent that even if existing safety functions may have been well documented, sometimes it's the hazards and functions that nobody has identified or thought about that have brought about the incident.
Getting safety right is not just about specifying the right products, it is based upon proper risk assessment and safety requirement specification, followed by rigourous steps to quantify integrity and eliminate systematic faults.
Richard Brooks will explore other issues relating to this important topic - and his perspective, from the public sector looking in on the private sector, should provide some refreshing food for thought for seminar delegates.
