PUWER stands for The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations. It provides needed guidelines to demonstrate how you can stay safe when using equipment at work. The regulations place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have any sort of control over work equipment. PUWER also places responsibilities on businesses and organisations whose employees use work equipment.
Our PUWER training aims to educate you on when equipment is suitable for use, safe to use, inspected properly and accompanied by suitable health and safety measures. This course is perfect for working towards compliance with current legislation.
