Consultation on Approved Codes of Practice on Work Equipment
The Health and Safety Executive has issued a consultation on proposals to amend a number of Approved Codes of Practice.
The Consultative Document sets out proposals 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 ACOPs with the aim of removing time-limited material and, where appropriate, simplifying the text.
