PUWER Assessments

According to the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations, often referred to as PUWER, require equipment provided for use at work to be:
  • Suitable for intended use
  • Safe for use, maintained in a safe condition and inspected to ensure it is correctly installed and does not subsequently deteriorate
  • Used only by people who have received adequate information, instruction and training
  • Accompanied by suitable Health & Safety measures, such as protective devices and controls
  • Used in accordance with specific requirements, for mobile work equipment and power presses

These regulations place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over work equipment. They also place responsibilities on businesses and organisations whose employees use work equipment, whether owned by them or not.

S&T Systems provides a comprehensive and independent PUWER assessment and verification service for companies using manufacturing plant, machinery and equipment. Our experienced engineers carry out a detailed inspection of your plant and equipment, focusing on safety-critical components outlined by the PUWER Regulations that could affect the capability of the equipment being safely operated. We will deliver comprehensive reports, provide practical advice and develop tailored action plans to ensure ongoing compliance with these rigorous safety standards.

  • Free impartial advice by phone, whether you have one machine or more.
  • Equipment survey to identify assessment and inspection requirements (for an agreed fee).
  • A no-obligation quote for the identified PUWER inspection requirements.
  • Inspection Service contract and schedule.
