Systematic approach to training in machinery safety
02 September 2019
Pilz has developed a new international qualification programme for professional advancement in the field of machinery safety and automation.
Operating across Pilz subsidiaries worldwide, the qualification concept guides training delegates from basic knowledge through to TÜV-certified expert level.
The content and structure of the training courses are designed so that delegates can plan their personal qualification path, entering at their own current level. The programme comprises four levels: Introduction, requiring no prior knowledge of machinery safety; Fundamental; Advanced; and Expert, which is intended as the step to becoming an absolute specialist in a subject area. At Expert level, the courses are also validated and certified by the external testing organisation TÜV Nord.
The training programme is internationally harmonised, offered in each individual country to the same standard and in the local language. This enables smaller multi-national companies to easily bring employees to the same level of knowledge and larger international companies to incorporate the training in to their own continuing education programmes.
