What is a Machinery Risk Assessment?
If your employees are working with machinery, such as abrasive wheels or cement mixers, then a comprehensive risk assessment needs to be carried out under PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1198). These regulations deal with the work equipment and machinery used every day in workplaces and aims to keep people safe which includes conducting a machinery risk assessment.
This will determine the level of risk and the precautions that need to be put into place to reduce this risk such as training employees or wearing the correct PPE which, in turn, will create a safer working environment and ensure that the HSE are satisfied with your compliancy towards safety matters.
