What is PUWER?
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations, often abbreviated to PUWER, place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over work equipment. PUWER also places responsibilities on companies whose employees use work equipment, whether owned by them or not. We show you that PUWER compliance doesn't have to be an impediment to your work.

ABOUT US

We are different! What we give are practical solutions based on real world applications. Machinery Safety & Compliance Services consultants are engineers. We tell you what you need to do to put it right, and more importantly, what you don't need to do. What you need are safe and useable machines, not just a bunch of risk assessments. We never leave you without a solution.

Woodworking company fined £12k for failing to fit drill guard

A timber products company that reclaims tropical hardwood must pay £12,000 after it repeatedly put employees at risk by failing to safely guard and maintain woodwork equipment. 

Barkingside Magistrates’ Court was told that employees could have been seriously injured because Ashwell Recycled Timber Products had not fitted a radial arm drilling machine with an effective telescopic guard or trip device.

£40,000 fine for overridden guard interlock

A food manufacturer has been fined £40,000 after a worker sustained serious injuries when the sleeve of his overcoat was caught in a large industrial food mixer. 

 

The machine was fitted with an interlock bowl guard to prevent access to its rotating mixing arm but it had been deliberately overridden, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigation found.

The worker’s injuries included broken ribs, a collapsed lung, and a large blood clot under the armpit. 

Suspended sentence handed to directors

The managing director and former operations director of a recycling firm have been handed prison sentences and the company fined £800,000 after failing to prevent an operative from being drawn into a conveyor, along the line through a trommel and into an industrial waste shredder.

Latvian Karlis Pavasars was working for Mid-UK Recycling at the firm’s Barkston Heath site near Ancaster in Lincolnshire when the incident happened on 19 July 2013.

Spare key let staff bypass interlock

A maintenance fitter who died after he was trapped in a conveyor used a spare safety key to access a guarded enclosure and work on the machinery while it was still powered up.

 

Precast concrete products manufacturer CPM Group was fined £660,000 after 43-year-old fitter Jeffery Baulf was fatally crushed when the conveyor started moving as he was carrying out maintenance work at the company’s plant in Frome, Somerset on 3 October 2016.
