PILZSince 2013, the automation and safety company, Pilz, has been working with TÜV Nord to offer the CMSE®-Certified Machinery Safety Expert qualification. More than 1,800 experts in over 40 countries have passed the corresponding examination. Now they can all use www.cmse.com to network, with access to exclusive, practical content.

The CMSE® Community is a global community of machinery safety experts. In a private area on www.cmse.com members have access to the latest news with relevant, specialist, innovative articles, written and edited by Pilz experts.

Exclusive downloads with white papers, information on the international legal situation, the position of the standards and technical documentation complete the range of information on offer. In subject-oriented forums members can exchange views, post questions and share their experiences.

"Machinery safety is a global challenge, which can best be resolved together. With the CMSE® Community, Pilz is creating the very first platform for international exchange among machinery safety practitioners. It's a place in which all worldwide advocates for workplace safety can network", explains Jaime Alonso, Technical Director of Pilz International Services Group.

Each CMSE® is automatically granted free access to the community. For those without a CMSE® qualification, information on how to gain certification can be found at www.cmse.com.
