BCAS hosts the 2015 PNEUROP Plenary

02 April, 2015

BCAS is playing host to the 2015 PNEUROP Plenary, an important annual event for the compressed air, gas and vacuum industry, this year being held from 25 to 27 June in Stratford-upon-Avon.

PNEUROP is the European Committee of manufacturers of compressors, vacuum pumps, pneumatic tools and allied equipment. Its members are national associations representing more than 200 manufacturers in eight EU Member States, in Switzerland and in Turkey.

PNEUROP works closely with the American Compressed Air & Gas Institute (CAGI), the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), and other standards bodies to develop appropriate standards for compressed air and gas systems equipment. The association contributes to several ISO committees including TC 112 (Vacuum Technology) and TC 118 (Compressors), and is an active stakeholder of the Ecodesign Preparatory Study on electric motor systems/compressors.

At the Plenary, attendees will be holding meetings and workshops to discuss developments affecting their business, in particular the new Eco-Design Directive.

Alongside this BCAS members are welcome to attend the Plenary’s social events, which include a formal dinner held in the Great Hall at Warwick Castle.

Stay Airsafe

Keeping up-to-date with the latest health and safety practices while managing a busy working schedule is challenging, and taking a whole day out of the office to attend training courses might not be practical. BCAS offers a wide range of online, e-learning courses, which provide fast and easy-to-understand information to keep teams working safely.

A good place to start is with the ‘Working Safely with Compressed Air’ training; a one-hour, internet-based course designed for anyone that works with compressed air as part of his or her normal duties.

Developed by BCAS in conjunction with safety practitioners it addresses the needs of those who use hand held air tools, including blowguns. As well as identifying the employer’s and the employee’s responsibilities, the course explores the hazards arising from the use of air tools and the correct use of personal protective equipment.

In addition to ‘Working Safely with Compressed Air’, BCAS offers four other training courses – a Certificate in Compressed Air System Technology, the Diploma in Compressed Air Management, the Written Scheme workshop and a Competent Examiner course for those involved in carrying out examinations in accordance with the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR2000) written schemes of examination – specifically the testing and certification of pressure vessels.
