Annual Machinery Safety Checks


PUWER 1998

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998

These regulations require that:

  • All equipment is suitable for the intended purpose
  • It is installed correctly and in a suitable location
  • It is maintained in a safe condition

In order to meet this requirement, an annual machinery safety inspection should be carried out by a suitably experienced and competent person.

We will carry out a detailed inspection of each machine and complete a photographic report with detailed recommendations on any repairs or alterations needed.

The employer needs to keep a record of such inspections for a minimum of 5 years
