If you are an employer or self-employed person and you provide equipment for use at work, or if you have control of the use of equipment, then the Regulations will generally apply to you.
Our engineers carry out thorough PUWER inspections, focusing on safety-critical components that could affect the capability of the equipment being operated in a safer manner.
PUWER is the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations and requires users of work equipment to carry out regular risk assessments which are documented and kept on file. Most importantly, those risk assessments must address each of the Regulations under PUWER. The regulations require that all provided work equipment is suitable for its intended task and can be used without putting persons at risk.
Safety Circuit Validation
MSCS can carry out assessments of your control systems with reference to EN61508, EN62061, EN 954-1 and EN ISO 13849-1. Not only that, but our advisors are engineers who can help you design a compliant control system.
Before we get started
in most cases EMF is probably one of the simplest Regulations to comply with. If it seems complicated, time consuming and expensive, you're probably doing it wrong. We have a simple three step approach to ensuring your risks due to EMF are addressed.
1. Assess where there may be a risk and to whom.
2. Quantify or measure the EM field.
3. Sign off or solve the issue.
