About Work Equipment Risk Assessment

This training course creates awareness of various hazards associated with the usage of work equipment. It also explores ways to identify such hazards and actions to control such hazards.

Many serious hazards are associated with the use of work equipment and machinery. Employers have a legal duty to ensure suitable controls are in place to protect staff and others to reasonably practicable level. As part of these controls, an adequate level of training must be provided.

Why Is Work Equipment Risk Assessment Important?

Every year, workers face numerous accidents from using work equipment in the industrial environment. Many are serious and even fatal. Using the well-maintained equipment operated by a trained workforce can help minimise accidents, personal and financial costs.

Employers who provide work equipment to workers must ensure it is safe for the intended use. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) make these responsibilities a legal duty. A failure to comply can result in significant consequences.
