7 PUWER 98 n Regulations 1-3 –Procedural n Regulations Suitablility of work equipment 5 - Maintenance 6 - Inspection* 7 - Specific risks 8 - Information and instructions 9 - Training *new requirement

8 Suitability of work equipment n PUWER 98 Regulation 4 n Every employer shall ensure that work equipment is so constructed or adapted as to be suitable for the purpose for which it is used or provided

9 Maintenance n PUWER 98 Regulation 5 n ensure that work equipment is maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair n Ensure that where any machinery has a maintenance log the log is kept up to date

10 What is maintenance?

11 Are these maintenance ? n Adjustments n Servicing n Lubrication n Cleaning n Inspection n Overhaul n Repair? n Minor modification? n Software changes? n Major modification n Redesign

12 Inspection n PUWER 98 Regulation 6 n Where safety depends on installation conditions n If exposed to conditions causing deterioration which is liable to result in dangerous situations n Exceptional circumstances

13 Inspection n PUWER 98 Regulation 6 n Ensure the results of and inspection is recorded and kept until the next inspection n Ensure equipment is accompanied by physical evidence of the inspection if moved from one undertaking to another

14 Conformity to EU legislation n PUWER 98 Regulation 10 –Obligation to choose CE marked equipment –Obligation to check that CE mark is valid* *new requirement

15 PUWER 98 n Measures to bring pre CE equipment up to standard 11 - Dangerous parts of machines 12 -Protection against specific hazards 13 - High or very low temperatures 14 - Controls for starting & making a significant change 15 - Stop controls 16 - Emergency stop controls 17 - Controls 18 - Control systems 19 - Isolation from sources of energy

16 PUWER 98 n Measures to bring pre CE marked machines up to standard 20 - Stability 21 - Lighting 22 - Maintenance operations 23 - Markings 24 - Warnings

17 PUWER 98 n Regulations –Mobile Equipment* n Regulations –Power presses* n Regulations –Procedural *new requirements
