The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations PUWER 1998 states that “If you are an employer or self-employed person and you provide equipment for use at work, or if you have control of the use of equipment, then the Regulations will apply to you”
So what does this mean?
You must ensure that the work equipment you provide meets the requirements of PUWER. You should ensure that it is:
Suitable for use, and for the purpose and conditions in which it is to be used;
Maintained in a safe condition for use so that people’s health and safety is not at risk; and
Inspected, in certain circumstances, to ensure that it is and continues to be safe for use. Any inspection should be carried out by a competent person (this could be an employee if they have the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to perform the task) and a record kept until the next inspection.
Sit-in ATV and Quad Bike Training
Our driver training courses go beyond the world of 4X4 vehicles and now include ATV and quad bike training. All-terrain vehicles have increased in popularity for the recreational driver but they also have a vital role to play in commercial and agricultural environments. These courses provide a comprehensive overview of ATV and quad bike use.
In addition to the specialist training students receive, our instructors also cover the use of trailers and sprayers. We have designed our one-day ATV and quad bike training courses to increase student confidence and to ensure all participants leave with the skills required to use these off-road vehicles correctly and safely.
