CAME’s flagship EN safety accreditation course
The most comprehensive EN Safety training available
Safety is of paramount importance for the whole CAME Group. It’s at the heart of product innovation throughout the CAME range. In 2007, CAME were the only UK company to support a new pro-active initiative on delivering EN Standards safety information to the nationwide network of automation installers. This initiative, in conjunction with the NSCGB, was fully funded and supported by CAME and was attended throughout the country by over 1500 installers in a two year period, 2007 to 2008.
During 2009 CAME in-house training material was re-designed to include EN safety as an integral part of the CAME program of training courses. This meant that new and existing installers were informed of their requirements to meet UK law pertaining to gate and automation safety. In 2010, a new EN Safety course was developed to compliment the existing courses and to provide installers with an in-depth understanding of the EN Standards.
After a number of regrettable accidents hit the national headlines, it was clear that there was still a need for better understanding within the industry and 7 additional emergency dates for the EN course were added, including 3 dates in the south of the UK. In 7 days, around 350 installers attended these courses.
2011 saw the launch of a new in depth, fully revised safety course curriculum – the CAMESAFE Certificate. Over 300 Installers attended the course and received their CAMESAFE credentials. Keeping safety at the forefront of our focus, the CAMESAFE course has been further expanded and updated to incorporate UK localisation of European Law.
