PAT Testing Legislation - The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER)

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 state:

"Every employer shall ensure that work equipment is so constructed or adapted as to be suitable for which it is provided."

The PUWER 1998 covers most risks that can result from using work equipment. With respect to risks from electricity, compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 is likely to achieve compliance with the PUWER 1998.

PUWER 1998 only applies to work equipment used by workers at work. This includes all work equipment (fixed, transportable or portable) connected to a source of electrical energy.

PUWER does not apply to fixed installations in a building. The electrical safety of these installations is dealt with only by the Electricity at Work Regulations.
