PUWER - (Provision & Use of Working Equipment Reg's.)
In 1998 PUWER legislation was introduced in the UK by the HSE putting responsibility onto employers to ensure that their machinery was brought upto a safe standard of operation to protect both operatives and other personnel from injury. This provided employers with a clear set of guidelines on what was required to meet PUWER Compliance criteria.
Guard-Tech has vast experience carrying out PUWER Assessments on all types of machine tooling equipment providing detailed PUWER Assessment Reports highlighting any non-compliance issues, risk assessments and recommendations on how to become fully PUWER compliant.WATCH VIDEO
