PUWER 1998 (4th Edition)

This Approved Code of Practice and guidance is aimed at employers, duty holders and anyone who has responsibility for the safe use of work equipment, such as managers and supervisors. It sets out what is needed to comply with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998. The Regulations, commonly known as PUWER, place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over work equipment. PUWER also places responsibilities on businesses and organisations whose employees use work equipment, whether owned by them or not.

LOLER 1998 (2ndEdition)

This Approved Code of Practice and guidance is for those that work with any equipment provided at work or for the use of people at work, those who employ such people, those that represent them and those people who act as a competent person in the examination of lifting equipment.

It sets out what you should do to comply with the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER).

LOLER applies to lifting equipment and builds on the requirements of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER).

This edition brings the document up to date with regulatory and other changes. The guidance clarifies which equipment is subject to the provisions of the regulations and the role of the competent person.
The context and examples have been expanded to show that LOLER applies across every sector using lifting equipment. New examples show the impact on the health and social care sector.

The LOLER and PUWER regulations have not changed. The HSE has revised and updated its Approved Codes of Practice L113 and L22 in line with the actions identified in Professor Löfstedt's 2011 report on Reclaiming health and safety for all: An independent review of health and safety legislation.

Nigel Brewis, Managing Director of Safety Check Engineering Ltd said “We are absolutely delighted with the audit report. ISO/IEC 17020:2012 accreditation is the internationally recognised standard for the competence of inspection bodies. It is the standard against which UKAS accredits inspection bodies and evaluates their technical competencies. We are an independent thorough examination and customer service focused business and so my approach has always been to invest in quality engineers, who receive the correct training and support to ensure we consistently deliver a second to none service. This clearly demonstrates to our clients our continuing commitment to offer proven and robust thorough examinations”.

In 2016 Safety Check Engineering Ltd completed over 1749 Tower Crane and 571 Construction Hoist & MCWP thorough examinations and since 2006 we have carried out over 11000 tower crane and 2000 Construction Hoist/MCWP thorough examinations.
