The B11 LMSS™ is a training course that covers a plethora of topics, introducing you to US legislation, regulations, and standards in the field of machinery safety and diving into the intricacies of risk reduction. Throughout the five modules our team of experts will guide you through the process of developing your expertise in US machinery safety and gaining exposure to a number of important US safety standards.
Following successful completion of the LMSS™ examination you will receive a certificate issued by B11 Standards, Inc, the ANSI-accredited Standards Developing (ASD) organization that administers the process through which the ANSI B11 series of American National Standards and Technical Report on machine / machine tool / machinery safety are developed and approved.
As a B11 Licensed Machinery Safety Specialist you will have a qualification that demonstrates your knowledge of US machinery safety standards and your ability to carry out risk assessment, select risk reduction measures and design safe control systems.
Module One takes B11.0 Safety of Machinery as its subject matter and focuses on the risk assessment process. It will also introduce attendees to US legislation, regulations and standards in the field of machinery safety. See available dates below.
- Module Five addresses LOTO and Alternative Methods, as per Z244.1 and NFPA 79 – Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery.
Module Three delves into B11.26 and the Application of ISO 13849 – Safe Control Systems.
Module Four covers the growth in automation and robotics has brought the Safety Requirements for the Integration of Machinery into a System – B11.20, along with Robot Safety Standards.
Module Two looks at B11.19 and the Risk Reduction Measures is the subject matter.
A B11 LMSS™ will be able to:
- Demonstrate understanding of the relevant legislation and regulations
- Understand the relevant machinery safety standards
- Understand the risk assessment process
- Understand risk reduction measures and how to implement them
- Define the required reliability for each SRP/CS
- Leverage examples provided by the machinery safety standards
If you are involved in the operation, maintenance, supervision or import of machinery, this certification offers proof of your safety competence.
Other machinery safety courses focus on ISO Machinery Safety Standards, but the B11 Licensed Machinery Safety Specialist course is focused on US B11 and ANSI Standards only.
The B11 LMSS™ course requires a basic level of technical competence in order to attend. It is recommended, although not essential, that attendees have either two years’ experience in the field of controls engineering, machinery safety, or a formal technical qualification.
