Pressure systems have been synonymous with industry since the
age of steam. Today it is almost impossible to name an industry
sector that does not make substantial use of pressure systems in
some way or other. From tyre inflators through refrigerators
to full blown industrial processes, pressure systems have become as
indispensable to industry as the electricity that powers them.
This informative and experiential course is aimed at raising
awareness of the hazards associated with pressure systems as well
as the relevant regulatory frame work. This course will offer
delegates the unique opportunity to learn from real life case
studies and forensic investigations into pressure systems failures,
providing a first hand perspective of what can go wrong and why.
Delegates will also benefit from a substantial afternoon
session with the HSE Inspector responsible for the current revision
of the Safety of Pressure Systems Regulations, during in which
delegates will be able to discuss both general and specific issues
directly with the regulator in an open forum setting.
What the course will cover
- Pressure, the basics
- Case studies from real life incident investigations
- What constitutes a pressure system
- What are the relevant regulations
- What are my regulatory obligations
- Appreciation of common hazards associated with pressure
- Common methods of risk mitigation
- Open discussion forum
On completion of this course delegates will be able to identify
pressure systems in the workplace and and understand which
legal requirements apply to this equipment. Delegates
will develop a firm understanding of the nature and significance of
common risks associated with pressure systems, who has duties under
the regulations and current risk mitigation strategies.
This one day course can also be delivered at HSE as an
in-company course. If you are interested in this and have a number
of people to train please email HSETraining@hse.gov.uk for a
