Why You Need Training

Three good reasons to train your staff.

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998, supersedes all other health and safety regulations in respect of employers duties to those operating plant and machinery in the workplace, the main regulation to consider in regards to training is;

Regulation 9 Training

“Every employer shall ensure that all persons who use work equipment have received adequate training for purposes of health and safety, including training in the methods which may be adopted when using the work equipment, any risks which such use may entail and precautions to be taken.

Every employer shall ensure that any of his employees who supervises or manages the use of work equipment has received adequate training for purposes of health and safety, including training in the methods which may be adopted when using the work equipment, any risks which such use may entail and precautions to be taken.

You should ensure that self-propelled work equipment, including any attachments or towed equipment, is only driven by workers who have received appropriate training in the safe driving of such work equipment.”

More and more construction sites and places of work will require you to prove the competency of your staff operating plant and machinery. This is where Cathedral Training can assist in your compliance and keep your company working safely and efficiently.
