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.
