Operator Woodmachine training is essential. The law requires that all workers must receive adequate training. It also makes good business sense to make sure all employees are working efficiently and safely.

Who should be trained?

Machine operators
Anyone who sets, cleans and maintains the machines
People who assist in the machining process (loading, feeding, taking off workpieces)

How long does it take?

The training needs of individuals will need to be assessed individually taking into account their age and experience. Contact us to discuss your needs and we would be happy to make a recommendation.

How often should training be given?

The Health and Safety Executive recommends that trained and experienced Woodmachine Operators receive refresher training at least every five years. New starters and novice users are likely to have the greatest training needs initially.

Who needs refresher training?

All Woodworking machine operators require refresher training. The frequency and depth of the refresher training will vary depending on the operator, what machines they use and how often.
