Unlike many other training providers, Pilz Automation Technology truly practices what it preaches. People attending Pilz machinery safety training courses can therefore be assured that they will benefit from knowledge gained by Pilz engineers and consultants who, for example, apply standards when designing safety circuits, and advise manufacturing companies on how best to comply with UK Regulations.
Today Pilz is one of the UK's leading providers of training in machinery safety and the management of health and safety, with several courses leading to City & Guilds or IOSH certificates for successful candidates.
Pilz has published a new booklet outlining the courses and schedule for January to June 2009. Many of the courses in 2008 were oversubscribed, so anyone interested in attending a particular course is urged to make a provisional booking as soon as possible.
Two types of course are offered: those relating to regulations and standards, and others that are specific to Pilz machinery safety products. Comprehensive information about all of the courses is included in the new booklet.
Courses relating to regulations and standards are:
- City & Guilds 4-day Machinery Safety Course

All of the scheduled courses take place at the Pilz training facilities in Corby, Northamptonshire, apart from one of the City & Guilds 4-day Machinery Safety Courses, which is at Durham County Cricket Club. Additional courses can be organised at companies' own premises or other convenient locations if required.
Furthermore, Pilz can tailor some of the courses to suit the specific needs of companies and/or individual attendees, applying the same rigorous quality assurance techniques to these as are applied to the scheduled courses.
