Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER)

Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) requires that all work equipment be maintained in an efficient state, in effective order and in good repair; where any machinery has a maintenance log, the log is kept up to date and that the equipment is regularly maintained.

How AGA can help with your LOLER compliance:

We understand that Care Homes require a lot of equipment in order to work efficiently and that the maintenance of this equipment can be a burden, so we have devised a service to remove this burden from and give time back to your Care Home management team to do what they do best, look after your Residents.
