Pilz launches PUWER Assessment service
14 October 2015
Pilz Automation Technology has launched a new PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations) Assessment service that aims to provide customers with an efficient yet detailed assessment of their machinery to PUWER.
PUWER is said to cover virtually all work equipment, from something as basic as a hand tool to a complex production line.
Jamie Walton CMSE from Pilz Automation Technology said: "The primary objective of PUWER is to make the work environment safe for everyone using or coming in contact with work equipment and machinery including employees, employers, suppliers, contractors and anyone else.”
Pilz can inspect machinery against PUWER and provide a comprehensive report for each item of work equipment. For any non conformance highlighted, Pilz will conduct a risk evaluation as specified in the standard EN ISO 12100:2010. Its assessors can even come and present the findings and discuss any questions users may have.
