  • Learners8Max

This training course aims to give learners skills and knowledge required to carry out Authorised Person duties and responsibilities in order to achieve compliance with Safety Rules and Procedures designed to meet the requirements of the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000.


Many organisations have adopted JSP 375 Volume 3 Chapter 4 (or parts thereof) as the basis for a Safe System of Work as applied to mechanical systems. For practicable commonality this course is therefore based on the content of this document together with HSG 253 Safe Isolation of Equipment. However, practical documentation exercises within the course can be tailored to organisations specific requirements where delegate numbers support this.

What is covered?

  • Fundamental principles of Applied Mechanics & Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical systems and components
  • Requirements of Pressure Systems Safety Regulations
  • Requirements of HASAWA 1974 and Delegated Legislation
  • Safe systems of work associated with mechanical systems
  • Isolation and task risk assessments
  • Monitoring and Audit requirements
  • Practical exercises in completion of safety documentation including hands on implementation

A mixture of trainer presentation and practical exercises
