= cesta k bezpečnosti strojních zařízení. Na jaře 2020 proběhla SÉRIE DESETI WEBINÁŘŮ v oblasti bezpečnosti strojních zařízení, které posluchačům pomohly zorientovat se v této problematice, popřípadě doplnit si znalosti v oboru. Koncept webinářů byl během deseti „virtuálních setkání“ představit základní požadavky legislativy, přes posouzení rizik, zabezpečení robotických pracovišť, ať už klasických nebo kolaborativních, až po návrh a ověření jednotlivých bezpečnostních funkcí stroje. Prvních deset webinářů bylo malou „ochutnávkou“ toho, co každoročně na školeních, workshopech a přednáškách (ať již u nás, nebo přímo u Vás ve firmě) přednášíme, ale i toho, co do budoucnosti chceme zájemcům nabízet. Jsme rádi, že webináře měly tak velký úspěch a pozitivní ohlas. Ten, kdo webináře nestihl, nebo si je chce připomenout, má možnost zde.
