Hazard assessment

Hazard assessment according to the Use of Work Equipment Directive

The Use of Work Equipment Directive 2009/104/EC and its amendment of 2015 govern safety and occupational health protection for employees when they use work equipment.

By law, companies must perform a hazard assessment for each item of work equipment. This means that the employer must document all hazards that could impair employees’ health
and safety. This must be done before the equip ment is used for the first time and at regular intervals afterward.
