ALLMI Technical Manager, Keith Silvester, comments “The one-day 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. As well as assisting a company’s compliance with the requirements of PUWER 9.2, the courses provide managers with an improved understanding of the technical, legislative and operational issues for which they are responsible, and the knock-on effect of this is that standards are then raised throughout the business.”

Richard Short, Sales Director for loader crane manufacturer, Penny Hydraulics, recently put two of the company’s senior staff through the Thorough Examiner manager training. He comments “Continually improving safety and standards is part of the culture here at Penny Hydraulics; it’s engrained in everything we do. For this reason, we’ve been keen to utilise ALLMI’s manager courses, as they play a valuable role in the ongoing review of best practice, allowing our management to further develop an understanding of the challenges faced by front-line employees, as well as helping us to meet our legal obligations under PUWER”.

ALLMI provides the following courses for managers:

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

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."

Keith Silvester concludes “The feedback received from course candidates continues to be excellent, and we would strongly encourage industry stakeholders to contact us, should they wish to learn more about the content and benefits of this training.”
