Work Equipment

Provisions and Use of Work Equipment Regulations

These Regulations, commonly know and PUWER, apply to the equipment provided for use in workplaces in general. They also apply to self-employed people who use equipment in a work capacity. The Regulations impose a wide range of requirements for the provision and use of work equipment, including: suitability; maintenance; risks; information and instructions; training; EU conformity; dangerous parts of machinery; protection against specific hazards; working in high or very low temperatures; operating controls; isolation; stability; lighting; markings; and warnings and exemptions.

Guiding, start/stop controls, locking-off procedures, entanglement and ejected parts - some of the many risks associated with machinery that need to be risk-assessed and then controlled. Having been in manufacturing for over 30 years, I can help with practical advice.
