Our 2 days Small Plant & Power Tool Safety Train the Trainer course enables you to become an instructor delivering effective Small Plant & Power Tool safety training and tool box talks to employees, in relation to the

Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER 1998).

Please note - The training is not based on a practical demonstration of how to use the tool, it is based on training the trainer how to create a safe system of work/ method statement for the tools they are using. Therefore, it can cover all the tools they use, as it is theory.
