Making sure you conduct the right types of inspections and examinations
I If your organisation uses plant and/or equipment in the course of work you must comply with The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and where applicable the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER). These pieces of legislation exist to ensure that work equipment is always safe to use.
What is PUWER?
The provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) is a set of regulations that aim to ensure that work equipment is safe for use. Whether you’re an employer, self-employed, or in control of work equipment, understanding and complying with PUWER is crucial. Our platform is designed to assist you in meeting these regulatory requirements by providing you with guidance on inspections, servicing, maintenance etc that may be required.
What is LOLER?
Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) is a set of regulations designed to ensure the safe use of lifting equipment such as cranes, hoists, forklifts, lifts etc in the workplace. Whether you’re managing a construction site, a warehouse, or any other industry that involves lifting operations, complying with LOLER is essential for the well-being of your workforce and others who may be affected.
If anyone is injured because of your faulty work equipment, your organisation can face very large fines and even imprisonment especially if you cannot provide evidence of a thorough inspection and servicing regime.
