Working safely with dangerous machines – it can be done!

And to prove it, we’ve set up a complete woodworking shop where trainers provide comprehensive instruction on all aspects of woodworking, and participants have a hands-on opportunity to see how those aspects fit together. The seminar’s content, aids and equipment are selected according to typical accidents that are happening nowadays. We combine a diverse range of applications with a high degree of safety.

Other topics to which this facility lends itself are ergonomics, risk assessment, machinery noise, dust emission and fire protection.
