PUWER replaces the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1992 and carries forward these existing requirements with a few changes and additions, for example, the inspection of work equipment and specific new requirements for mobile work equipment. Lifting equipment is also subject to the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998
