  3. Training to provide advice on use of PPE

A new construction training scheme which includes advice on the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) has been launched.

The Storage Equipment Installers Registration Scheme (SEIRS) has been created to ensure that people in the industry meet certain regulations and have knowledge of health and safety issues.

According to Materials Handling World magazine, installation workers will also need to have qualified in the initiative to apply for a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card.

Mike Tucker of the Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA), which developed the initiative with the CSCS, told the publication that it is 'a very comprehensive programme'.

He added: 'The SEIRS ID card, which must be renewed every three years, demonstrates a level of knowledge and a commitment on behalf of individuals operating in this labour intensive sector.'

SEMA works to promote the safe design and installation of storage equipment manufactured by its members.

Last year, the organisation held its annual safety conference at the National Motorcycle Museum near Birmingham.
