In Brief: HSE Guidance on the Safe Use of Work Equipment

The Health and Safety Executive has a publication on what employers and others responsible for workplace health and safety should do in order to comply with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998. The Regulations place specific duties on people and companies which own, operate or have control over work equipment, the definition of which is very broad.

The publication contains the text of the Approved Code of Practice, and associated guidance providing practical advice on how to comply with the requirements of the Regulations.
