Prestressing Safety Awareness Training
Health and safety is paramount within the concrete industry and with our experience we are able to help Prestressing companies fulfil their duties by providing Prestressing Safety Awareness courses structured to individual company requirements. We have developed this over several years in conjunction with Proskills Global which is the industry training council and we now undertake the training on behalf of the council working to their stringent guidelines and providing a national register of trained operatives.
On site training of operatives in the use of stressing equipment is tailored to suit the equipment, facilities and stressing procedures of the individual site. This will ensure that they can operate the equipment safely, minimising risks and preventing accidents. EKC is a recognised training specialist backed by Proskills Global, click here to visit their website.
Essentially this means that all personnel involved specifically with the Prestressing of Precast Concrete who can satisfactorily demonstrate the necessary skills, knowledge and competence levels required against the relevant modules will be issued with a CTA that will be recorded upon a national register. Employers, the Health and Safety Executive and other interested bodies and organisations will be able to make enquiries to validate individuals CTA achievements.
The scheme enables the employer to meet their responsibility with respect to instruction and training which will result in a safer working environment.
The course we provide covers the modules listed below:
- PS1 Basic Awareness H & S
- PS2 Maintenance of Stressing Equipment
- PS3 Receipt and Handling, Storage, Inspection and placing for Production
- PS4 Bed Operative Procedure
- PS5 Stressing Operative Procedures
- PS6 Management Overview of Site Safety during Stressing Operations
Certification can be provided on any combination of the above modules with PS1 being required for every training session.
The Prestressing Training Courses are recommended for the following personnel:
- Stressing Operatives
- Bed Operatives
- All staff that are required to enter Prestressing production areas
We recommend that group size be a maximum of 8 so as not to disrupt production.
