"the 1974 Act" means the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974;

"educational establishment" means a university, polytechnic, college, school or similar educational or technical institute;

"relevant training" means work experience provided pursuant to a training course or programme, or training for employment, or both, except if—

(a) the meaning of the word "work" shall be extended to include relevant training;

(b) a person provided with relevant training is at work throughout the time when he would be in the course of his employment if he were receiving such training under a contract of employment, but not otherwise, and the meaning of "at work" shall be so extended;

and in that connection, in the other relevant statutory provisions, "work" and "at work" shall be construed accordingly.

Meaning of "employee", "employer" etc.

4.    For the purposes of the relevant statutory provisions a person provided with relevant training shall be treated as being the employee of the person whose undertaking (whether carried on by him for profit or not) is for the time being the immediate provider to that person of the training; and "employee", "worker", "employer" and related expressions in those provisions shall be construed accordingly.
