These Regulations give the protection for and duties of employees under the relevant statutory provisions as defined in the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 to those who are provided with “relevant training” as defined in regulation 2.
For the purposes of the relevant statutory provisions, regulation 3 extends the meaning of “work” and “at work” to include relevant training as defined in regulation 2; and regulation 4 provides that the trainee shall be treated as if he were the employee of the person whose undertaking is the immediate provider of the training.
The Regulations do not apply if the immediate provider of the relevant training is an educational establishment and it is provided on a course run by the establishment nor if the training is received under a contract of employment.
Regulation 5 revokes the Health and Safety (Training for Employment) Regulations 1988 and the Health and Safety (Training for Employment) (Amendment) Regulations 1989.
