PPE Inspection – RoSPA Approved Competent Person Certificate for Industry

Duration - 4 Days :: Course Cost - £620 plus VAT

This is a course for those who require industry-leading certification in the control, maintenance and examination of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for work at height and rescue.  Rope access supervisors, safety supervisors and those responsible for worksites or equipment stores will all benefit from this course.

This highly-popular, RoSPA approved course teaches candidates how to systematically manage and inspect PPE for work at height (collectively called Personal Fall Protection Equipment) throughout its lifetime.  In so doing the requirements of current UK legislation such as the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998  (LOLER) and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) will be satisfied.

The course programme covers in detail current legislation and equipment standards, appropriate selection, identification, maintenance and storage of equipment, formal thorough examinations of equipment and the production of appropriate examination regimes, management systems and written reports.  Also included are repair and disposal procedures plus the opportunity to view and analyse destructive tests on damaged items of PPE.

Topics are covered using a combination of hands-on product inspection training, destructive testing demonstrations, damage and wear analysis and classroom presentations.

To gain maximum benefit from this course, applicants should have pre-course experience in the use of a range of Personal Fall Protection Equipment.  Our 1 day PPE inspection course provides an introduction for those with less experience.

Following successful completion of a formal written and practical assessment and verification by an external moderator, candidates will receive a Lyon Equipment ‘Competent Person’ certificate authorising them to undertake thorough examinations of the equipment verified during the course.  Candidates will also receive an ID card record of training, valid for three years.
