Why is it important?
Every year we see shocking statistics from the Health and Safety Executive for the number of days lost through industrial injury and the worrying increase in the number of deaths and serious injuries, particularly where this concerns the use of work equipment.
Our safety advisers often find that managers are confused about whether operators of work equipment need to have ‘Certificates of Competence’ for every item of equipment they use; they often do not understand the primary requirements of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations –
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.
