What is PUWER?
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations, often abbreviated to PUWER, place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over work equipment. PUWER also places responsibilities on companies whose employees use work equipment, whether owned by them or not. We show you that PUWER compliance doesn't have to be an impediment to your work.

ABOUT US

We are different! What we give are practical solutions based on real world applications. Machinery Safety & Compliance Services consultants are engineers. We tell you what you need to do to put it right, and more importantly, what you don't need to do. What you need are safe and useable machines, not just a bunch of risk assessments. We never leave you without a solution.

Why Health & Safety Is Important In The Workplace

It doesn't matter what kind of workplace you're in, every employer is duty-bound to comply with health and safety regulations to protect employees from exposure to hazards that could affect their health or cause serious bodily harm, this can be related to manual handling tasks, the operation of workplace equipment such as machinery or display screens, therefore implementing a solid health and safety strategy is one of the wisest things you can do for your business.

Boring Machine Accident

On 5 September 2018, two employees of Sulzer Electro Mechanical Services (UK) were standing on the chuck of a large vertical boring machine at a site in Bordesley, Birmingham, to set it. The start button was inadvertently pressed and, despite the interlocked perimeter fencing access doors being open, the chuck started to rotate.

Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigators revealed that the interlocks on the perimeter fencing access doors were not working, and there were no safety checks in place to ensure that the interlocks were in working order.

New Opto-Check

Our Opto-Check gives you a quick and easy method to accurately check the operation of an opto-electronic sensing device, based on the methods as referenced by BS EN ISO 61496-2 and HSG180. It can be used during the design, installation, and inspection of barrier guards to make sure they operate correctly. opto check

Worker Crushed In Poorly Guarded Machine

A Northampton-based engineering firm has been fined after an operator was crushed while making moulds for a casting machine.

The RSM Castings employee, who has asked to remain anonymous, sustained extensive injuries on 11 April 2018, including a broken neck, back fractures, broken ribs, a fractured shoulder blade, a ruptured spleen and torn liver, a punctured lung, facial fractures and loss of teeth.
He has not yet been able to return to work due the severity of his injuries.

HSE FFI increasing to £154 per hour

FFI was designed to recover costs incurred by the HSE during regulatory action against organisations that fail to comply with safety and health law, thus transferring the financial burden from the taxpayer to the business.  
The new charge came into effect on 6 April 2019 and it is the second increase since the scheme was introduced in October 2012. The rate first went up in 2016, from £124. In a statement, the HSE said this can be attributed in part to the fact that the scheme has operated recently at a deficit.
