Is your equipment good to go?
20 August 2014
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998 impose specific legal duties on companies to provide, inspect, maintain and operate safe work equipment.
Good to Go Safety has been designed to help employers meet their obligations under PUWER.
Product manager Graham Halliday explains: "We wanted a simple solution that would provide essential pre-use equipment checks, records of all inspections for management/maintenance programmes, a visual indication that a check had been completed, and flexibility in the frequency of inspections."
A tag is attached displaying a Do Not Use message until a check is completed. A checklist is used to carry out the inspection, with a duplicate copy automatically created and retained as part of the audit trail. The completed checklist is signed and dated before being placed inside the tag to clearly indicate when equipment is 'good to go'.
