In agreement with Work Safe VIC and SYSTEC, Vanderlande is hosting a seminar on the designing and analysis of safety zones for critical equipment and functionality. The seminar is titled: Safety Zone Design Program: Zoning Safe Analysis for Safety Critical equipment and functionality

The Seminar will be half day program running from 9:00am to 13:00pm. You can attend on either Monday 23rd March 2020 or Monday 6th April 2020

Legislation requires that personnel and other persons “should be given the highest level of protection against harm to their health, safety” However, it is not generally possible to design system that eliminates the need for personnel to interact with hazardous sources of energy at all times.
Designers are sometimes forced, when unable to eliminate risks in design, to incorporate engineering, isolation, and administrative strategies to minimize the  risk of harm “in so far as is reasonably practicable”. While guidance exists on functional (engineering) and general administrative safety systems and their role in mitigating health and safety risks, there is no specific guidance that sets out the principles to be considered in the adoption of zoning strategies and its role in mitigation of health and safety risks.

This program focuses on this important idea!

Date: Monday 23rd March 2020 or Monday 6th April 2020
