The PUWER 98 regulations were introduced by the HSE (Health & Safety Executive) in 1998 to ensure that all companies who have a duty of care to their employees bring their plant and equipment up to a safe standard of operation. This includes regular maintenance and risk assessments of their plant and equipment with the objective of vastly reducing risk to operators and other personnel in the workplace and where possible removing risk completely.
Guard-Tech carries out PUWER (Provision & Use Of Working Equipment Regulations) assessments and LOLER (Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations) assessments on a wide range of machinery and equipment and works with most of the largest blue -chip organisations in the UK and also works with some of the largest Oil & Gas Companies out in the United Arab Emirates and North Africa.
Our highly trained PUWER assessors attend site and carry out in-depth surveys of each piece of equipment and engage with operators and supervision in order to fully understand the operation, setting up and loading/ unloading aspects of the equipment so as to be able to assess the equipment properly and provide a comprehensive report.
As part of our overall turn-key package Guard-Tech provide on-site PUWER assessments of machinery, plant and equipment by our vastly experienced specialist PUWER assessors followed by a comprehensive reporting system which includes the following data:-
