4. Personnel / Training
All personnel carrying out work covered by this Code of Practice shall be trained and be competent in the requirements of the Code.
They shall have received suitable training in the calibration techniques used and a training record shall be kept. Training and competence shall be regularly reviewed.
The nature and methodology of calibration of weighing instruments often requires the movement of large masses. Personnel involved in calibration shall be suitably trained to carry out the work safely: UKWF members are expected to work in compliance with Health and Safety legislation and to work in a safe manner; customers are reminded that responsibility for the Health and Safety of contractors working on their premises is as much theirs as the contractors'. Risk assessments should be completed.
