Spiers Engineering Safety publishes the ultimate guide to PUWER

Getting your head around PUWER inspections and PUWER planning can be difficult when you have many other things to be thinking about too. Spiers Engineering Safety has created the Ultimate Guide to PUWER which will walk you through the basics, and help you make informed decisions. This guide will also support learners working towards their Certified PUWER Assessor Qualification (CPA).

PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998) covers a set of regulations designed to ensure that all equipment and machinery in the workplace are safe to use and pose no significant, foreseeable risk to the health and safety of employees, employers, and anyone else who has access to them.

Before operating on any kind of machine, it is essential that the person must be competent to use it, therefore training must be provided on safe operating procedures (SOPs).

The new guide will help to support safety practitioners looking to develop their PUWER compliance implementations. It covers:

  • The different roles of PUWER
  • Why it's important to have a "PUWER champion"
  • Planning for PUWER
  • Examples of asset types that are certain to represent significant risk and will be identified as needing a PUWER inspection
