PUWER Assessments

Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER)

Ensuring the safety and compliance of your work equipment is paramount. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) sets out the essential requirements for employers to ensure that any equipment provided for use at work is safe and suitable for its intended purpose. At Safe 365 UK, we provide comprehensive PUWER assessments to help you meet these legal obligations and maintain a safe working environment.

What is PUWER?

PUWER requires that work equipment is:

  • Suitable for Intended Use:
    • Equipment must be appropriate for the tasks it is designed to perform and must be used under conditions that do not compromise safety.
  • Safe and Well-Maintained:
    • Equipment must be maintained in a safe condition and inspected regularly to ensure it remains safe for use and does not deteriorate.
  • Operated by Trained Personnel:
    • Only individuals who have received adequate information, instruction, and training should use the equipment.
  • Accompanied by Safety Measures:
    • Suitable health and safety measures must be in place, including protective devices, controls, guarding, emergency stop devices, isolation means, and clear markings and warning devices.
  • Compliant with Specific Requirements:
    • Special considerations and requirements apply to mobile work equipment and power presses, ensuring these types of equipment are used safely and effectively.
