Health and safety training

We offer any of the elements from the D&TA accreditation scheme. The accreditation is designed to ensure that all staff working in or around a DT department are fully trained and work by the BS4163 code of practice when using machinery and tools to minimise risks to health.

Our DT Health & Safety training follows the accreditation scheme, enabling any staff member, including technicians, TAs, and NQTs, to be fully trained, whether completing all or part of the training program.

The training is designed around the machinery in your school’s working environment. Each piece of equipment has minimum training times, so depending on the program chosen and the number of machines, the training program will be a one-day or two-day course. Some of the training options we have available:

  • Basic DT teachers’ day, including band saw, circler saw, pillar drill, sanding machines, power fret saw, hand tools and basic power tools (drills and sanders).
  • Turners’ day, including centre lathe (metal) and Wood lathe training.
  • Metal machining day, including centre lathe (metal), milling machine and grinding.
  • Power tools day, including router, reciprocating saw, circular saw, biscuit jointer, angle grinder, power planer, drills, and sanders.
  • Hot metal day, including brazing hearth, forge work, pewter casting, and aluminium casting.
  • Personal protective equipment, to ensure staff can instruct students how to appropriate use peronal protective equipment (PPE).

Other training options available include:

  • Non-DT teacher machine training day to train non-DT staff to safely use machinery
  • Annual machine servicing
  • Bespoke training programmes
