Manager Courses - Are you Complying with PUWER 9.2?

ALLMI’s range of one-day manager courses continues to be sought after, with companies across the lorry loader industry looking to bolster their compliance with the requirements of PUWER 9.2:

PUWER 9.2 "Every employer shall ensure that any of his employees who supervises or manages the use of work equipment has received adequate training for purposes of health and safety, including training in the methods which may be adopted when using the work equipment, any risks which such use may entail and precautions to be taken."

ALLMI Technical Manager, Keith Silvester, comments The manager courses are abbreviated, attendance based (i.e. no assessments) versions of our standard training programmes, covering all of the same topics and, in many cases, also including a practical element.” 

He continues “The provision of manager courses has a direct impact on the level of knowledge, appreciation and competency within the lorry loader industry.  It enables managers and supervisors to gain an enhanced understanding of the technical, legislative and operational issues relating to areas of the business for which they are responsible, and to form a greater empathy of the challenges faced by front line staff.” 

ALLMI provides the following courses for managers:

  • Lorry Loader Operator
  • Slinger / Signaller
  • Crane Supervisor
  • Appointed Person
  • Thorough Examiner

Andy Woodward, Aftersales Director for ALLMI member, Palfinger UK, recently attended the Thorough Examiner and Appointed Person manager courses.  He comments “The use of ALLMI manager courses is in keeping with our ethos here at Palfinger UK, as we strive to continually improve upon our high standards.  The training was excellent and we would certainly recommend these courses to other companies in the lorry loader industry, as they will no doubt raise awareness levels and lead to the development of safer, more efficient working practices.”
