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.


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.

How often should a PUWER Inspection be carried out?

There are plenty of conditions in which a machine would require to be inspected that are fully covered in PUWER regulation 6 to ensure healthy and safety conditions are maintained to a high standard.

A requirement of PUWER is that an individual considered to be a competent person, must examine, and test the machinery before it is first used. This is what’s known as a PUWER Inspection.

Boring Machine Accident

On 5 September 2018, two employees of Sulzer Electro Mechanical Services (UK) were standing on the chuck of a large vertical boring machine at a site in Bordesley, Birmingham, to set it. The start button was inadvertently pressed and, despite the interlocked perimeter fencing access doors being open, the chuck started to rotate.

Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigators revealed that the interlocks on the perimeter fencing access doors were not working, and there were no safety checks in place to ensure that the interlocks were in working order.
