Plant/Machinery Inspection

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998 was introduced to ensure safety when working with any work equipment, including power presses. It applies to employers, self-employed and employees – the owners and users of work equipment.

The principal purpose of periodic statutory inspection of plant and equipment is to detect and report deterioration that affects the safety of persons. Types of deterioration include corrosion, erosion, wear, cracking, vibration loosening of fastners, overheating/burning, impact damage, subsidence, contamination ingress, leaking, vermin attack, etc

The Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (PSSR) 2000 applies to most pressure systems used at work.

The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998 apply to all businesses in the UK that have lifting plant and undertake lifting operations.
