Compliance with Compressed Gases

Essential information for Management and Operational Supervisors.

The Law requires an organisation to provide whatever information, instruction and training is needed to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the Health and Safety of its employees.

Current market conditions and economic pressures can sometimes divert attention away from the key issue of safety compliance.

It is sometimes difficult to ensure that Managament and Supervisors are up to date with relevant Legislation, as well as industry Codes of Practice, Guidance Notes and best practice.

Gas Safe offers a range of tailored Compliance Workshops (Industrial, Laboratory and Cryogenics or combination), which provide all the essential information that Managers and Supervisors require to ensure they can effectively oversee the safe use of compressed gases.

LaboratoryComplianceThe training provides key instruction that will assist delegates with their gas-related Health and Safety objectives under current Legislation.

These workshops are tailored to meet customers exact requirements. They are designed to be conducted on site at clients premises and includes a practical demonstration, as well as interactive instructor-led sessions.
