Managing Work Equipment


The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) sets out the employer's duty in managing work equipment safely and effectively. It also states that all work equipment must meet certain safety requirements, and be used safely following safe systems of work established by the employer. There are also specific requirements for certain machinery e.g. woodworking machinery, power presses etc.

This health and safety training course will help delegates to understand the requirements of the PUWER Regulations, and enable employers to meet their legal and practical obligations.
