Machinex, Plessisville, Quebec, has announced its two recently nominated employees, Sébastien Delisle and Jonathan Fortier, are now accredited by the TÜV Nord certification and are now able to be titled as a certified machinery safety expert (CMSE). CMSE is a globally recognized license that enables a full-circle approach to machinery safety.
Both already work daily to guarantee that Machinex systems fulfill all laws and regulations, Machinex says. This certification confirms their competence to advise on the safety of machinery, entire plants and factories. They have extensive knowledge of machinery lifecycles, from risk assessment through the development of safety concepts and the application of functional safety principles, to the actual implementation to ensure compliance with applicable legislation.
“At Machinex, we have always considered the importance of safety in the manufacturing and improvement of our equipment,” Pierre Paré, Machinex CEO, says. “To be recognized as a CMSE—Certified Machinery Safety Expert (TÜV NORD) is a great achievement for our employees and it brings Machinex to a higher level of safety.”
Delisle and Fortier are also members of the National Waste and Recycling Association (NWRA), Arlington, Virginia, who serve actively on the ANSI Z245 Drafting Committee that exists especially for the recycling industry. This ANSI series covers recycling facilities, baling/compacting/sorting systems, size reduction equipment and all required operations of a plant cycle life.
