What is the Parlour Safe Scheme?

Parlour safe is the Land based Technician Accreditation Scheme for the Milking Equipment Industry. The objective of the Parlour Safe Scheme is to provide a common means of benchmarking, monitoring and assessing the competence of technicians and other employed in the milking equipment sector. The scheme also provides encouragement and recognition for both employers and technicians and other employees who voluntarily commit to continual professional development in pursuit of technical support excellence. Parlour Safe has been developed by the Milking Equipment Association (MEA) the only independent organisation dedicated to representing the interests of milking equipment manufacturers, distributors and suppliers.
