Consultantion on Changes to PUWER ACOPs

Source: HSE

CD268 – ACOPs: Provision and Use of Work Equipment (L22), Safe Use of Power Presses (L112), Safe Use of Woodworking Machinery (L114)

The Consultative Document sets out proposals from HSE to amend the approved codes of practice (ACOP) on the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) (L22); Safe Use of Power Presses (L112) and Safe Use of Woodworking Equipment (L114). This is a light-touch review of the PUWER ACOPs with the aim of removing time-limited material and, where appropriate, simplifying the text.
