Power Press Safety Training

Power press safety training that meets the requirements of PUWER 1998

An Introduction to Power Press Training

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).
