AS/NZS 4024.1 Machine Safety Training

Join a seminar presented by SICK engineers focusing on Machine Safety referencing EN ISO 13849-1, EN IEC 62061 and AS/NZS 4024.1 in Australia and New Zealand. The training will cover the major 2014 revision to AS 4024.1, the first since 2006. The revised standard includes direct text adoption from some ISO, IEC and EN standards. In addition, AS 4024.1 now becomes a joint Australian/New Zealand standard, AS/NZS 4024.1:2014. You have the opportunity to gain in depth knowledge and understanding of legislation and how it affects you as well as learning from industry leading experts.
