ABIMAQ will present reading and interpretation of the new NR 12 in a workshop at Intermach


The changes and challenges of the new change of NR 12 will be in evidence at the workshop that ABIMAQ – Brazilian Machinery Builders Association promotes at Intermach, on September 18th, from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM, in Joinville. The specialist Sidney Esteves Peinado, will present the theme “The new NR 12 – reading and interpretation”, pointing out the modified items and the challenges for the industries. “We are going to show the impacts of changes to manufacturers and users of machines and equipment, by highlighting the reading and interpretation of the regulation.  We will show the point of view of control and inspection, not of the manufacturer and user,” he adds.

According to the consultant many industries have doubts since the  publication of Ordinance 197 dated 12/24/2010, major review since ordinance 3214 dated 1978, and how to apply it in their processes. “The regulations and laws are not always easy to understand and it is natural for doubts to always exist, considering even, the need of following the hierarchy of laws of the Federal Constitution, CLT (Consolidated Labor Laws), Ordinances, Regulatory Standards, Technical notes and Normative Instructions,” he explains.

The program will cover the concepts and principles of NR 12 showing in evidence the recent changes, and practical issues related to the safety devices and elaboration of designs, with highlight to Risk Assessment. “Everything is a question of interpretation and we want to help manufacturers of machines and equipment in this item so that they may be assertive in the application of the standard in your industrial units,” Peinado affirms.
