Take a moment to consider the impact of a serious accident caused by the failure of a Pressure System in the workplace. As well as potential injuries and risk to life, there are also the financial implications and brand reputation to be considered. With over 2000 interventions by the Health and Safety Executive in 2017 and the British Compressed Air Society quoting that there are approximately 6 fatalities and 150 reported accidents associated with pressure systems each year, there is a need to improve safety within pressure systems. With the aim of improving safety standards by using the “Pressure Systems Safety Regulations”, PressureSafe training and our service provider partnership packages will assist all businesses using pressure systems to not only comply with the regulations, but will also provide a safer environment for their staff.
Training provided by the PressureSafe partnership aims to improve the safety of pressure systems by focusing purely on issues that affect the safety of the whole system and not just pressure vessels. It is amazing that after 30 years of “pressure systems” legislation most inspection companies are still focused on the pressure vessel and not the whole system. All of our courses are focused on the whole system and the whole of the regulations, not just one element.
The courses have been designed by experienced engineers who have direct experience and safety qualifications to demonstrate their competence and knowledge of the “Pressure Systems Safety Regulation 2000” (PSSR 2000), and on how an examination is conducted and reported. The ½ day refresher and 2 day examiners course is accredited by the Institute of Safety and Health (IOSH), and certificates awarded are issued by IOSH. The training provides the knowledge and skills required to add to the delegates competence. Courses include both written and practical examinations. Delegates must achieve a minimum of 75% correct answers to receive a pass mark to qualify for the IOSH certificate.
Each course is delivered by engineers who are experienced in carrying out examinations and in the preparation of “Written Schemes of Examination”. The training takes place at our training centre in Liversedge, West Yorkshire, five minutes from junction 26 of the M62. In 2017 over 250 engineers were trained here and certificated by the Institution of Safety and Health (IOSH). Our specialised training courses cover health and safety issues associated with ‘Pressure System Safety Regulation 2000’, and the responsibilities imposed on engineers while examining, inspecting and testing pressure equipment.

“Wrights have been looking to further expand our service offering to customers UK wide. In order to offer PVI testing to our large customer base we needed to work with a partner who could not only provide training, but also an intuitive system for our technicians to use. PressureSafe offered both of these at my first meeting with the company. I would have no problems in recommending PressureSafe to anyone.”M. Pitts
“The overall experience was excellent with a relaxed atmosphere within the training but at the same time the points of the course were well met”Graham McLaughlin
“Every course I have been on I’ve always felt tired and like drifting off to sleep…never once have I felt like that on this training Course. I have enjoyed it and learnt a lot”Pete Marsh
“I really enjoyed the course and feel much more confident now”Jason Roberts
