Use of Work Equipment Directive Assessment

We assess, so you can manufacture

The ‘Use of Work Equipment Directive’ 2009/104/EC requires a formal assessment of a machine’s safety and suitability for use. The directive was adopted into law by the individual EU member states in various forms but all with the same objective: to ensure that work equipment is safe for end-users.

It specifically requires that all work equipment must be assessed by the machine’s owner before it is put into service - and at other appropriate intervals.

The assessment must be performed:

  • Before a machine being put into use for the first time
  • At appropriate or regular intervals depending on the machine’s duties and the environment in which it sits
  • When the machine is moved / relocated – even when it is within the same facility
  • When the machine is modified or changed in any way that may affect its suitability for safe use and fitness for use.

Focused in two main areas of the directive:

  • Assessment of the site policies and procedures by way of mandatory legal health and safety requirements
  • Physical assessment of the machine.
