Pressure systems awareness – Buxton, 16 June 2016

Book Course

HSL is to run a 1 day course on Pressure Systems Awareness.

16 June 2016


Pressure systems have been synonymous with industry since the
age of steam. Today it is almost impossible to name an industry
sector that does not make substantial use of pressure systems in
some way or other.  From tyre inflators through refrigerators
to full blown industrial processes, pressure systems have become as
indispensable to industry as the electricity that powers them.

This informative and experiential course is aimed at raising
awareness of the hazards associated with pressure systems as well
as the relevant regulatory frame work.  This course will offer
delegates the unique opportunity to learn from real life case
studies and forensic investigations into pressure systems failures,
providing a first hand perspective of what can go wrong and why.
 Delegates will also benefit from a substantial afternoon
session with the HSE Inspector responsible for the current revision
of the Safety of Pressure Systems Regulations, during in which
delegates will be able to discuss both general and specific issues
directly with the regulator in an open forum setting.


  • Pressure, the basics
  • Case studies from real life incident investigations
  • What constitutes a pressure system
  • What are the relevant regulations
  • What are my regulatory obligations
  • Appreciation of common hazards associated with pressure
  • Common methods of risk mitigation
  • Open discussion forum

On completion of this course delegates will be able to
identify pressure systems in the workplace and have an appreciation
of the regulatory requirements for the management of a pressure
system portfolio.  Delegates will also develop a firm
understanding of the nature and significance of common risks
associated with pressure systems as well as current risk mitigation

This one day course can also be delivered at HSL as an
in-company course. If you are interested in this and have a number
