The Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations [PUWER] have been in place within the UK since 1992 - the current edition since 1998; yet there are still accidents reported almost every week – not all are prosecuted or make the national press - that involve physical injury to employees as a result of some failing in the provision or the use of work equipment. These accidents tend to fall into two categories – those caused by improperly used equipment and those caused by poorly specified or maintained equipment! Additionally, work equipment has the ability to cause occupational ill-health, especially as a result of exposure to noise, vibration, lubricants, oils & greases. Delegates will understand the application of PUWER to all work equipment, the topics defined in PUWER that need to be considered with regards to work equipment, awareness of specific hazards and be able to apply these principles effectively in practice to different types of work equipment.
