PSSR Training Course

Overview

engineer training

Our primary aim is safety.

Everyone has the right to go home from work in the same condition they arrived.

Therefore, we encourage service engineers to focus on "Safety First", to reduce risks from the uncontrolled release of stored energy from a pressure system.

PSSR is not just about Witten Schemes and Examinations (WSE), the regulations also focus on design, installation, maintenance, repair, operation and keeping of records.

Service engineers will gain knowledge on how PSSR regulations impact on them, their company and customers. The course will clearly define the duties of all relevant personnel involved in the process, from design to installation through to service, maintenance and examination of the whole system.

Course Objectives

The course is to develop experienced service engineers wishing to carry out statutory examinations as required by PSSR, with a safety first approach.

Course Highlights:

  • Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 awareness and understanding
  • How and why PSSRs were introduced and the cost of noncompliance and the potential consequences of an incident
  • Who holds a responsibility to the regulations
  • Analysis of the importance of implementing PSSR via the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP)
  • Application of examination reports and the need for accurate and detailed reports
  • Procedures for introducing new equipment
  • Written Scheme of Examination, format and how it should be used
  • Examples of examinations and best practise guidelines
  • Safety Videos
  • Additional coursework to be carried out by the delegates away from the training course
  • Course workbook to provide advice and practical ideas on implementation and management of the regulations

Successful delegates will receive an IOSH certificate, which is a great addition towards demonstrating competence and best practice.

PSSR Refresher Course

Overview

This course gives delegates a renewed understanding of the "Pressure System Safety Regulations 2000" (PSSR). They will benefit from this course by refreshing the knowledge gained from the PSSR Training Course and it acts as a check on the service engineers abilities and attitude towards implementing PSSR.

Course Objectives

Refresh previous learners knowledge of the regulations and host interactive discussions on their experiences in the field. We will set and discuss case studies and practical application of the regulations.

The Course will include:

  • Recap of Regulations
  • Interactive Discussion on engineer experiences in the field
  • Cost of non-compliance and the potential consequences of an accident
  • Enforcing the importance of implementation of PSSR using the ACOP
  • Reaffirming who holds a responsibility to compliance
  • Applying the regulations to real scenarios
  • Software additions/training
