CP7 Gas Training
The Weldfast (UK) Ltd Oxy Fuel Gas Inspectors Assured Programme
The Weldfast (UK) Ltd Oxy Fuel Gas Inspectors Programme is an intense two-day programme covering all aspects of the gas inspections in accordance with the BCGA Code of Practice 7. It is recommended that potential inspectors have some prior knowledge of gas equipment before starting the programme and a pre reading pack sent out prior to starting the programme.
The Programme content includes developing knowledge on key UK Industrial Regulations that cover working with industrial gases and the reasoning behind there is a need to complete formal gas inspection. The Programme briefly goes through how EU laws affect us here in the UK and identifies the manufacturing standards for each piece of Gas Equipment. During the first day, candidates complete a risk assessment in accordance with Management of Health & Safety Regulations 1999 and the resulting assessment is placed within their own inspection folders. During this session, we develop knowledge on the Classifications of Gases, Identifying the main Oxy/Fuel equipment components – describing how each works and how to visually inspect them for serviceability. Finally, candidates complete with some revision on lighting & closing down a flame and the correct procedure to close down a system at the end of their daily process. Candidates also go through the correct emergency procedures when something has gone wrong. At the start of the Programme, each delegate receive various HSE handouts to aid them with further revision.
The second day starts with some light revision of the previous day‘s activities, followed by a demonstration of a complete inspection of an Oxy Fuel system. Candidates are then observed carrying out their own practical inspection using Programme guidance notes. There is a further assessment utilising faulty equipment and other various demonstrations. At the end of the 2-day package, candidates are expected to complete a written question paper.
Once completed, all candidates receive an Inspector’s Identity card, an Inspection folder, and a Oxy/Fuel gas inspection toolbox. Weldfast recommend that candidates routinely return to keep updated with current UK Codes of Practice and the Gas Equipment manufacturing standards.
