Recent prosecutions related to machine safety under the new H&S at Work Act have highlighted the importance of ensuring safe machinery is in place.  This has significant potential implications for those that may carry out any machinery design, installation and commissioning work and is an area that Engineers are likely to be working in and functional safety is a key practice area.  Hamish Baker will cover off:

  • An overview of Machine Safety and Functional Safety
  • Recent prosecutions and the potential implications
  • Key lessons/observations to consider with respect to machine/functional safety engineering works. 

Hamish Baker (BTech (Hons), DipNEBOSH(UK), Certified Functional Safety Professional - MEngNZ) is a Director at TEG Risk & Sustainability Services Ltd where he manages a team that specialises in engineering based risk management and machine safety.  He has worked in the UK and NZ in the FMCG and Chemical sectors in engineering and generalist safety management roles. This has included the successful implementation of ACC Tertiary Accreditation and COMAH Top Tier Safety Case programmes.  This experience and his OH&S Diploma means he brings safety management skills to his engineering practice and the Functional Safety skills mean he brings detailed technical and engineering skills to the practice of safety management for machines.
