S2/99 - Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations
Information on how to manage the risks associated with work equipment
Work equipment covers a wide variety of items, including machinery, apparatus, equipment, installations and tools. There is a legal obligation on the University to ensure this equipment is fit for purpose and safe to use. That obligation includes a need for appropriate designs, installations, maintenance and testing.
The policy details these requirements, including the need for risk assessment and information, training and supervision of those persons using the equipment.
