Course Overview

Ensure that your workplace is risk-free and that essential equipment is operating at an accepted standard with this Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) course. This critical set of UK regulations ensures that workforces are kept safe from machinery and appliances in everyday use. By completing this training, you will be empowered to identify and mitigate unacceptable risks created by unguarded moving parts and poorly maintained devices. From oil rigs to automobile factories, safety standards for industrial machinery and appliances must be rigorously upheld to avoid accidents and fatalities. When you study the contents of these online modules, you will become acutely aware of how machinery should be selected, checked, operated, and maintained in a workplace. The course has also been updated to reflect the changes caused by Brexit and the importance of UKCA and CE safety markings. If you wish to become involved with health and safety in the workplace, this is essential information for legal compliance and risk assessments.
