A 5 day training course designed to meet the essential requirements of safe working procedures on mechanical systems. Our most popular course is structured around the specific safety rules of the MOD and procedures contained in their Health and Safety Handbook JSP 375 Volume 3 Chapter 4, but it can be tailored to other standards by arrangement. Delegates who are to be appointed under safety rules, should be in possession of a completed and countersigned log book and should also be able to demonstrate an appropriate level of experience of mechanical systems and mechanical principles and theory.
