PUWER 98

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 replaced the original PUWER regulations first introduced in 1992. The main change was in the coverage of mobile work equipment, woodworking equipment and power presses allowing the repeal of the 1965 Power Press Regulations and a number of other older regulations, including those on woodworking machinery.

Practical PUWER Reports

Understanding your needs, and the technical requirements of Legislation, means we know how to make life easy for engineering project managers.
Our PUWER reports are not just risk assessments, they are fully data-minable and can be customised to produce detailed project plans with costing and progress tracking.

Our assistance doesn't end with the report. We can help with the design of the remedial works and
sign off of your
machinery when safe.

Our strategies

Many PUWER and CE consultants provide excellent advice and risk assessments. But rarely given, are practical solutions based on real world applications. This philosophy is custom and practice from Machinery Safety Compliance Services.
We tell you what you need to do to put it right, and more importantly, what you don't need to do. Machinery Safety Compliance Services consultants are engineers with extensive technical capability to help design solutions.

Whether it is European Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC) or the Provision and Use of Work Equipment/Work Equipment Directives, safety and Compliance in the workplace is an important legal requirement. We must also provide a safe working environment for our employees.
We must, however, be able to produce efficiently. Our solutions provide a reduction in risk that is practicable, and still allows equipment to be used by employees.
