PUWER Assessment and Inspection Services

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER Regs or PUWER 98 regulations) require risks to people’s health and safety, from equipment that they use at work, to be prevented or controlled. In addition to the requirements of PUWER, lifting equipment is also subject to the requirements of the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER)

The regulations outline for employers the suitability, maintenance and PUWER inspection requirements for ALL equipment used, from simple hand tools to complex process machinery.

ISI provides support and guidance on suitability of work equipment, maintenance and inspection for a wide variety of machinery and process lines and provide reports to satisfy the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER regulation 6). The level of inspection required and the competency of the inspecting person depends on the complexity of the machine.
