Carry out suitable maintenance – including a whole-system maintenance programme that considers factors such as age, uses and the environment in which it is operated.
Make provision for appropriate training – to make sure all users have had the correct training on how to operate the equipment properly.
Have the equipment examined – A written scheme of examination (WSE) must be written up, to be used by a competent person to carry out the examination. This must be carried out minimum of every 12 months on machines over 1 year old.
Choose a competent person – ensuring they have the necessary knowledge, skills and, importantly independence to undertake their role and responsibilities effectively.
