PUWER & Risk Assessment Practical Workshop


The PUWER (Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations) section of the course aims to provide delegates with an overview of PUWER including parts 1-5, who is responsible, what duties are placed on them and what equipment the regulations apply to.

The risk assessment is necessary and a fundamental aspect of machinery safety, as well as the first step towards complying with the legal requirements (Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC) and standards. This workshop guides the participants through the risk assessment process for machinery with the aid of pictures and videos. The aim is to be able to identify hazards and conduct risk assessments (severity and probability of occurrence). In addition the risk is evaluated and the techniques of applying suitable risk minimisation measures are taught.
