Power press tool setters

A practical course designed to improve power press safety

What is the Power Press Tool Setters course?

The two day Power Press Safety training course is designed to enable learners to fully understand and adhere to the legal standards when using Power Press machines and of course to ensure operators are safe at all times.

Why take the Power Press Tool Setters course?

Accident data has shown that poor maintenance has been at the root of about 40 per cent of incidents involving mechanical presses. It’s therefore a statutory requirement that power presses are examined and tested by a competent person before they are put into use for the first time and then every six or twelve months depending on the types of guard fitted. Machine users also have a legal duty to carry out an inspection and test of the safety devices every day the press is used to ensure that it is safe to use.
