This PUWER Training course will explain how to maintain a level of safety while using work equipment and understand the responsibilities under the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) Regulations. Businesses and organisations can use the regulations as guidelines to help their employees stay safe when using equipment at the workplace.

Employees must be able to identify equipment that is needed for the right task, have the confidence to inspect properly and to put in place suitalble health and safety measures.

NOTE: Not all work equipment will be subjected to the legislation as they could fall under LOLER, which would require LOLER Training instead.

Who is this PUWER training online for?

If a job role requires you to use equipment at work, then being familiar with what's covered under PUWER is much needed. If you look after equipment or employ those that do then looking after their health and safety is legally required by law.

Anywhere that equipment and machinery are being used such factories, offices, shops, construction sites to name a few, would need their staff trained to become aware of the hazards and how they could be managed.
