Introducing our new PUWER inspection service

How do you ensure the safety and compliance of your workplace? How do you make sure that your equipment is well-maintained? 

One crucial aspect of this is adhering to the “Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998,” commonly referred to as PUWER 1998. 

These regulations are designed to safeguard the wellbeing of employees and protect the efficient functioning of machinery and equipment in the workplace and are adhered to when doing a thorough PUWER inspection.

To help your journey towards compliance and safety, NDT Group is delighted to introduce our new PUWER inspection service.

What is PUWER 1998?

PUWER 1998, established by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in the United Kingdom, outlines the legal obligations of employers and employees concerning the provision and use of work equipment. 

Its primary aim is to ensure that all work equipment in the workplace is safe for use, appropriately maintained and operated by adequately trained individuals. 

These regulations are a cornerstone in the comprehensive framework of industrial safety and compliance, serving to protect both the wellbeing of employees and the efficiency of machinery and equipment in the workplace.

The role of PUWER inspection

A PUWER inspection is a thorough assessment of work equipment to determine its compliance with the regulations.

The importance of PUWER regulations

The PUWER regulations serve a dual purpose. 

Firstly, they are indispensable in preventing workplace accidents and injuries. 

Machinery and equipment that are not properly maintained or used can pose significant risks to workers. 

PUWER 1998 is designed to mitigate these risks by ensuring that equipment is regularly inspected and maintained in good working order.

Secondly, PUWER regulations are essential for the overall efficiency and productivity of your operation. 

When your machinery and equipment are operating at their peak, you minimise downtime, reduce repair costs, and improve the longevity of your assets. 

Compliance with PUWER 1998 not only protects your workforce but also enhances your bottom line.

PUWER inspection frequency

The frequency of PUWER inspections can vary depending on the equipment and its usage. 

However, it’s generally recommended that inspections be carried out at regular intervals to maintain compliance and safety. 

Routine inspections are essential because equipment can degrade over time due to wear and tear and problems can emerge gradually. 

A proactive approach to PUWER inspections can detect issues before they escalate into costly and potentially dangerous problems.

We can work with you to develop a regular testing plan depending on your needs.
