Work Equipment: Employers’ Obligations
Industrial, mechanical or electrical equipment in the workplace must be suitable for purpose. A detailed risk assessment must be conducted to ascertain whether accidents could happen. This is especially important when equipment is being used under difficult or confined conditions.
Those in charge of a workplace must make sure that all work equipment is maintained in good repair and working order. If the equipment is prone to wear and tear, then it should be regularly inspected. Employers must deliver adequate training in its use and protective clothing or equipment should be provided where necessary. Employees must be fully informed of any risks involved in using, maintaining or cleaning the equipment. If a piece of equipment is faulty and potentially dangerous it must be immediately removed from service.
