The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998 r9(1) requires that every employer shall ensure that all employees who use work equipment receive adequate training for the purposes of health and safety. This is to include, training in the methods which may be adopted when using work equipment, any risks which such use may entail and precautions to be taken. This duty extends to any employee who manages or supervises the use of work equipment. Under the HSWA 1974 s2(1), the employer must ensure the health, safety and welfare of their employees.
