Managing Work Equipment

Managing Work Equipment

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) sets out the employer's duty in managing work equipment safely and effectively. It also states that all work equipment must meet certain safety requirements, and be used safely following safe systems of work established by the employer. There are also specific requirements for certain machinery e.g. woodworking machinery, power presses etc.

This health and safety training course will help delegates to understand the requirements of the PUWER Regulations, and enable employers to meet their legal and practical obligations.

The Managing Work Equipment course is designed to introduce delegates to the requirements for managing work equipment. It is suitable for people with responsibility for managing and performing a risk assessment on the use of equipment - including managers, supervisors and safety representatives.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Managing Work Equipment course is delivered over half a day (three hours). This enables the course to be provided to two different groups on one day, meaning that not all of your staff need to be away from the workplace at the same time.

Each delegate will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course, which will contain information, guidance and forms.

The course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.

Delegates will be awarded a certificate of attendance upon successful completion of the course.

Scheduled Courses

Our Managing Work Equipment course is not currently scheduled as an open course, and is currently only available as an in-house course where we come to your premises and deliver the training for a number of your employees.
