Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations
The UK's Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) place duties on people and companies who own, operate, or have control over specific types of plant and equipment. A wide range of equipment is covered by PUWER; from bulldozers and dumper trucks, to pallet trucks and air compressors.
A requirement of PUWER is that, in many cases, equipment is subjected to statutory, periodic 'thorough examination' by a 'Competent Person'.
