The next complimentary webinar from TÜV SÜD Product Service is titled ' an Introduction to PUWER' and will be held on Wednesday 27th August 2014, 2pm GMT.
This webinar will give an introduction to the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER). The regulations require users of work equipment to carry out risk assessment and provide work equipment that is suitable for its intended task and can be used without putting persons at risk. The Regulations cover any machinery, appliance, apparatus, tool or installation for use at work (whether exclusively or not) - effectively it is anything used at work.
The PUWER regulations now make it an offense to allow work equipment to leave an employers undertaking, or if obtained from another undertaking, be used, unless it is accompanied by physical evidence that the last inspection has been carried out.
