PSSR 2 Day Training Course:


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, the regulations also focus on design, installation, maintenance, repair, keeping of records etc. Service engineers will benefit from gaining 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 and maintenance of the whole system.

Course Objectives

This course is to develop experienced service engineers wishing to carry out statutory examinations as required by PSSR, in conjunction with the CoffeeSafe online reporting system. The course gives practical examples of examinations and best practise guidelines as set out by the HSE and other associated bodies.

Course Highlights:

  • How and why PSSR was introduced and the cost of non-compliance
  • Analysis of the importance of implementing PSSR via the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP)
  • Discuss and operate a Written Scheme of Examination, explain the duties of the competent person and examiners
  • Application of examination reports and the need for accurate and detailed reports
  • Who holds a responsibility to the regulations
  • Cost of non-compliance and the potential consequences of an incident
  • Procedures for introducing new equipment
  • Written Scheme of Examination, format and how it should be used
  • Statutory Examinations
  • Safety Videos
  • Additional coursework to be carried out by the delegates away from the training course
  • Course workbook to take away to provide advice and practical ideas on implementation and management of the regulations

Delegates who complete the training and pass the test paper, will receive an IOSH certificate and ID card, which are great additions towards demonstrating competence and good practice.

Half Day PSSR Refresher Training Course


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 2 day course and it acts as a check on the service engineers abilities and attitude towards implementing PSSR. We will revisit the issues around competent person and most importantly the managing and maintaining of the safety to the whole pressure system, not just focusing on the pressure vessel examination.

Course Objectives

The main objective is to review the methods of examination, ensure that any tests conducted are implemented and reported clearly so that the highest standards of safety are maintained to protect all who are exposed to a pressure system.

The Course will include:

  • Enforcing the importance of implementation of PSSR using the ACOP
  • Reaffirming who holds a responsibility to compliance
  • Cost of non-compliance and the potential consequences of an accident
  • Reports, test certificates, forms and record keeping
  • Applying the regulations
  • Procedures for the installation of new equipment
  • The duties and relationship between that of the competent person and examiner
