PUWER Regulation Checks

Make sure your forklifts adhere to PUWER regulations by enlisting professional help. Here at East Midlands Forklifts, we use our 25 years of combined experience to perform thorough PUWER checks to the highest possible standards, ensuring the driving components of your machines are thoroughly checked.

To uphold the best quality work equipment and practices, PUWER (Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations) were outlined in 1998 to guide company owners and managers on the correct way to use, store and maintain work equipment. In relation to forklifts, PUWUR checks will cover the driving components of your machines, whilst LOLER will cover the lifting components.

Forklift PUWER regulation checks will cover several key things, and ensure the driving components of your forklifts are:

  • Maintained in safe condition
  • Inspected to ensure correct use/installation
  • Inspected for signs of wear and tear

These checks will highlight any developing issues with your forklift health and operation, along with raising any health and safety risks this could impose on workers. Contact our friendly team today to discover more about PUWER checks across Nottingham, Leicester, Derby & Loughborough.
