You’ve been chal­lenged to start doing risk assess­ments on your machine designs, but you don’t know where to start. Per­haps you’ve bought a few stan­dards or a book or two, hop­ing to fig­ure it all out, but you nev­er seem to be able to stay focused long enough to get what you need from these mate­ri­als.

You need train­ing. You start the hunt in the Google search box, but find­ing the right kind of train­ing is daunt­ing. How do you know what you need?

Search no longer! Com­pli­ance inSight Con­sult­ing opened it’s online Train­ing Cen­tre this month and is now tak­ing enrol­ments for the char­ter class in Machin­ery Risk Assess­ment!

Risk Assessment 101

Risk Assess­ment 101 is designed for machin­ery design­ers, tech­nol­o­gists and engi­neers who need to get a han­dle on the basics of risk assess­ment. The course includes 12 mod­ules, cov­er­ing

  • the basics of risk
  • haz­ard iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and analy­sis
  • like­li­hood of injury
  • risk con­trol mea­sures
  • risk assess­ment work­flow
  • doc­u­men­ta­tion
  • next steps

The course includes a live class each week, unit quizzes to help learn­ers gauge their under­stand­ing, live office hours with the instruc­tor each week, a Face­book dis­cus­sion group, and much more. Stu­dents suc­cess­ful­ly com­plet­ing the course will receive a Cer­tifi­cate of Achieve­ment.

Future Courses

Over the next few months, addi­tion­al cours­es will be added to the Train­ing Cen­tre on top­ics like CE Mark­ing, Func­tion­al Safe­ty, Machine Guard­ing, and much more. Some cours­es will be self-direct­ed, while oth­ers will have live class­es as part of the pro­gram.

Our goal at CIC is to pro­vide our cus­tomers with a con­ve­nient, afford­able way to get the train­ing they need when they need it. We hope to see you in class soon!

A Note about Our Travel Policy

Canadian passport

We believe trav­el gives us a broad per­spec­tive both per­son­al­ly and pro­fes­sion­al­ly. Our focus is glob­al. Our eth­i­cal posi­tion is clear; we believe in the health and safe­ty of ALL peo­ple. We believe in the pow­er of sci­en­tif­ic data, and in the pow­er of con­nect­ing with oth­ers glob­al­ly, so we might learn from one anoth­er.

Com­pli­ance inSight Con­sult­ing Inc. began 17 years ago; we spend our time work­ing to help ensure the safe­ty of peo­ple who work with machin­ery. We have clients whose busi­ness­es span the globe, but most are in North Amer­i­ca. And as many of our read­ers know, Doug has always been active with­in the glob­al reg­u­la­to­ry com­mu­ni­ty, rep­re­sent­ing both our indus­try and Cana­da. (Doug has occa­sion­al­ly found him­self on more air­craft in a month than many air crews!)

New Travel Policy

The cur­rent US admin­is­tra­tion has made trav­el to the US prob­lem­at­ic or even impos­si­ble for many. Our com­pa­ny and many of our col­leagues are among those affect­ed by these deci­sions, as the glob­al com­mu­ni­ty scram­bles to deal with what has become a dai­ly onslaught of shift­ing US pol­i­cy deci­sions. As a result, we have decid­ed to stop trav­el­ling to the US, effec­tive imme­di­ate­ly, and for the fore­see­able future.

Our Solution

Our clients from the US are our friends and neigh­bours, and we are still here to help.

We will con­tin­ue to offer a vari­ety of web-based solu­tions to our clients, pro­vid­ing train­ing and con­sult­ing ser­vices via web meet­ing soft­ware, phone and email. We are cur­rent­ly inves­ti­gat­ing cloud-based edu­ca­tion solu­tions so we can offer a com­pre­hen­sive online train­ing por­tal. We will con­tin­ue to serve our US clients as we have in the past, we just won’t be stop­ping by for a vis­it for a while. We hope you under­stand.
