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.

HSE U turn on FFI

The HSE issued a statement on 9 February outlining its plans to hold a consultation on the make-up of the panel that adjudicates on disputed FFI invoices. Health and Safety at Work understands that the statement followed a meeting between OCS Group and the HSE where the two sides came to an agreement to halt the legal proceedings.

This essentially means that regulator has voluntarily taken up a position that it might have been forced into if the scheduled judicial review hearing had gone ahead. It is beleived that the judicial review is now likely to be cancelled.

FFI Judicial review due March

The full Judicial Review hearing in the High Court has been brought forward to March of this year regarding the dispute process of HSE’s Fee for Intervention Scheme (FFI).
In 2011 the government published its proposals for the reform of health and safety entitled Good Health and Safety, Good for Everyone. In it, they stated that:
“it is reasonable that businesses that are found to be in serious breach of health and safety law – rather than the taxpayer – should bear the related costs incurred by the regulator in helping them put things right.”

Jaguar Land Rover fined

Jaguar Land Rover have been fined £900,000 after one of its workers was crushed between two cars at its plant in Solihull. Victim Mark Widnall lost a leg as a result of the incident in February 2015.
The manufacturer was also ordered to pay £49,864 after a jury at Birmingham Crown Court convicted it of breaching health and safety regulations.

EMC Testing

Electro-magnetic compatibility

MSCS Ltd has invested heavily in EMC test. In 2014 we opened our new Open Area Test Site or OATS. Our large scale OATS provides radiated emissions, radio and antenna measurements up to 10 meters. Due to our own 8 acre site, an obstacle free area is provided as required by the standards such as CISPR-16. Situated in the rural area of Northamptonshire, the OATS has low electromagnetic ambient noise, crucial for radiated emissions measurements.
