IOSH Accredited PSSR 2 Day Training Course:

Overview 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 Written 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 PressureSafe online reporting system. The course gives practical examples of examinations and best practise guidelines as set out by the HSE and other associated bodies.
