The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998
The main legislation relevant to using abrasive wheels is the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (or P.U.W.E.R). Firstly, this document makes it clear that any work equipment and machinery must be fit for purpose. Secondly, it requires that anyone who’s going to use a piece of equipment – in this case, an abrasive wheel – must receive adequate training and safety information before using that equipment.
