Pressure Systems Safety Regulations


    alt txt



    When using pressure systems, the UK's Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (PSSR) places duties on every employer or self-employed person to provide a safe workplace and safe work equipment; with designers, manufacturers, suppliers, installers, users, and owners having additional health and safety duties.

    A wide range of equipment is covered by PSSR, from autoclaves to air receivers, and safety valves to various boilers (e.g. café steam boilers, wet back boilers, pressurised hot water boilers, etc).
