Guidance on the Regulations intended to ensure work equipment should not result in health and safety risks regardless of age, condition or origin. PUWER 98 apply to all such equipment including mobile and lifting devices and all workplaces and situations where the Health and Safety at Work etc Act applies (including certain offshore activities in British territorial waters and on the UK continental shelf). This is addressed to anyone with responsibility (direct or indirect) for equipment and its use (eg employers, employees, self-employed and hirers). With Regulations in full and support from the Approved Code and additional guidance, it is colour-coded to enable easy distinction between the three texts.
