Who should attend?
Each organisation should have a person responsible for health and safety who needs to understand the regulations that apply in that industry, so if there is any reason to believe that employees may be using vibratory tools, then it is crucial to gain an understanding of this law. This might apply to health and safety managers, works engineers, responsible people, general managers or company owners.
The Law requires companies to assess the risk of injury from vibratory tools in the workplace. This course is designed to provide a provide an understanding of the Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 and what is needed to comply with them.
