Ways to Learn

Course Overview

Power presses have always been considered to be high-risk machines and it is essential that they are properly inspected, tested and maintained to keep operators safe from serious injury.

It is a statutory requirement that power presses are examined and tested by a “competent person” before they are put into use for the first time. Similarly, it is imperative that employees are provided with mechanical power press safety training.

This course is designed to train delegates in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act (PUWER 1998).

*Rated 4.8 out of 5 by learners on Coursecheck, TSW Training has been a trusted and established training provider of choice for 56 years.
