Your legal responsibility

As an employer you have a legal responsibility to protect the health and safety of your staff and other people - such as customers and members of the public - who may be affected by their work.

With regards to lifting equipment you should:

  • ensure plant and machinery are safe and that safe systems of work are set and followed;
  • give workers the information, instruction, training and supervision necessary for their health and safety;

There are key pieces of legislation covering work equipment and some of the guidance that is available.

Legislation governs both the design, construction and supply of work equipment (SUPPLY), and how work equipment is selected, provided, used, and maintained (USE & MAINTENANCE) to ensure that risks to workers health and safety are properly controlled.

Generally, work equipment is any equipment which is used by an employee at work. Therefore the range of equipment is extremely wide and could cover everything from a spanner to a tower crane.
HSE InfoLine can help with any queries you may have.
