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 certification that demonstrates your knowledge of US machinery safety standards and your understanding of the risk assessment process, selection of risk reduction measures, and appropriate design of safe control systems.
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
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.
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.
