Safe Use of Power Press

Course Summary

Power presses are amongst the most dangerous machines used in industry. Amputation or serious injury usually results from accidents caused by trapping between the tools of a power press. Traditionally, the safe use of these machines was covered by The Power Press Regulations 1965 and 1972. Recently however, new legislation has been introduced, namely, The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER98), supported by the Approved Code of Practice – Safe Use of Power Presses. This programme has been devised to provide delegates who have responsibility directly or indirectly for the provision and use of power presses, with sufficient knowledge to fulfil legal obligations placed upon them by current Health and Safety Legislation and will cover both theoretical and practical applications.
