Checklist for heavy equipment to meet statutory inspections
ON THIS PAGE
Contact us

Workplace statutory inspections are periodic inspections that ensure that owned or operated plant and equipment, including lifting equipment, passenger and goods lifts and pressure systems, meet the required health and safety standards.

PUWER, LOLER and PSSR are key regulations to prioritise safety for work equipment and ensure compliance. They centre on preventing serious injury and ensuring all risks are covered. Our engineers provide support and resources to demonstrate compliance with regulatory and statutory obligations.

Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER)

What is PUWER?

PUWER places responsibility on people and companies who own, operate or control work equipment. It ensures suitability for intended use, maintenance of safe condition and inspection, accompanied by health and safety measures.

What equipment is covered by PUWER?

The regulation applies to all work equipment, whether new or used, and whether it’s owned or hired. Always assume that PUWER applies to equipment in your workplace. Lifts, escalators, hoists and cherry pickers are identified as equipment under PUWER regulations.

Why are PUWER inspections necessary?

PUWER inspections are required to check that equipment can be operated, adjusted, and maintained safely. It also helps to identify and address deterioration, defects, damage, or general wear and tear. The frequency of your PUWER inspections depends on risk assessments, but pre-use checks are essential. Any equipment that poses significant health and safety risks needs regular formal inspections.

Engineer inspecting a lift
  • Qualified inspections for a full range of lifts, including:
    • Passenger lifts
    • Stairlifts
    • Disability access and wheelchair lifts
    • Goods lifts*
    • Service lifts/dumb waiters*

*Require annual inspections. All others require six-monthly inspections.

  • Asset management using our BHI LOLER activity management tool to plan all LOLER activities
  • Dedicated third-party supplementary tests across all types of lifts referenced by SAFed.
Various compressed air and pressure systems inside a building

Our capabilities for PSSR involve developing a WSE for and inspection of (but not limited to):

  • Compressed gas systems (air, nitrogen, biogas, oxygen and more, low and high pressure)
  • Refrigeration plants
  • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment
  • Wind turbine gas-loaded hydraulic accumulators
  • Coffee machines
  • Industrial steam boilers
  • Industrial and tabletop autoclaves
  • Our bespoke compliance management software BHI allows you to monitor asset compliance with a simple login.
    • Any recommendations for improving compliance are recorded in the software.
