Different regulations apply for end users and manufacturers in terms of machinery and safety for temporary demountable structures.

European Directives, harmonised standards, national and international norms and codes of practice define the boundaries of your planning framework.

Alongside BLUMANO engineering services and consultancy, we provide training courses on many aspects of machinery, control safety and temporary demountable structures related to the entertainment industry.
Our training services encompass all aspects of stage machinery safety, the relevant legislations, applicable standards and good practice.

Training can be tailored to meet your exact needs and can be organised either at your workplace or in a venue of your choice.
Copies of handouts, information packs and guidance notes are available as part of your tailored package.

The application of Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC in the entertainment industry.

The application of Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC in the entertainment industry.

The session will give delegates a one day introduction to Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, Standards and Code of Practice, which is related to machinery safety, along with how certain standard guidances are implemented within the entertainment industry.

This session will explain which European Directives apply to stage machinery and the harmonised standards that can be followed in order to claim presumption of conformity. It will also give an overview of the national European standards and codes of practice related to lifting and load bearing equipment for stages and other areas of the entertainment industry.

Safe integration of machinery, control systems, rigging equipment and temporary demountable structures.

Safe integration of machinery, control systems, rigging equipment and temporary demountable structures.

This course will give delegates the fundamentals of machinery safety and the definitions of machinery assembly, which is based on several stages of machinery configurations and the required control functions when integrating electric chain hoists, winches, tracking systems and stage lifts with control systems and trusses. A dedicated risk assessment is also required for the travel of these groups of machines in order to establish the necessary safety and control functions in the event of failure. The course is also designed to explain the European requirements related to the integration of machinery with control systems, the EC compliance obligations, and the technical documentation required to claim the EC presumption of conformity.

Risk Assessment: Lifting Operationsand Scenic Movements

Risk Assessment: Lifting Operations and Scenic Movements

This course will give delegates the fundamentals of the assembly of machinery risk assessment based on national and international standards to evaluate, estimate and reduce risks related to a scenic movement.

The training will explain the difference between a simple and complex system, the safety related functions and their SIL/PLr level, and the complementary risk reduction measures necessary to reach a suitable safety integrity for a group of machinery configurations.

Statically determined and undetermined configurations, synchronous or asynchronous lifting operations and case studies will be analysed in order to learn how to draft a Scenic Movements RA for stage lifting operations.

Risk Assessment: Stage Machinery and Control Systems

Risk Assessment: Stage Machinery and Control Systems

This course will give delegates the fundamentals of risk assessment for stage machinery based on EN ISO 12100:2010 and CWA 15902-1:2008.
The training will explain the basics of risk assessment based on the defined limits and the intended use of the machine. It will also cover the identification and allocation of hazards, the risk estimation and evaluation, and it will examine the three step criteria for risk reduction based on the mechanical, electrical and functional safety assessment.

The focus of the training is to give manufacturers of stage machinery and control systems, the correct framework to conceive, test and validate the inherent safety design of machinery, the safeguards and the complementary measures in order to draft the machinery information for the user manuals.
