Last reviewed on 19/04/2013 10:29

If you need to develop training to carry out or supervise maintenance, you might find the Health and Safety Executive's guidance on training and supervision (external site) and Healthy Working Lives' free Awareness Training useful.

Checklist for training in maintenance and supervision

  • Consider who requires training, when and in what form
  • How will employees best access this training
  • Who should deliver training
  • Keep a record of all staff training whether internal or external.

Staff training is an important element in ensuring that your staff are competent to carry out the tasks expected of them at work. These tasks might be the actual maintenance role or could equally be the supervision of those undertaking the activity.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) also produce a range of HSE priced and non-priced printed and multimedia products ( external site) to assist in training and development. Try searching under training, supervision or maintenance.
