Current HSE Guidance for Pressurised Systems

When using pressure systems, every employer or self-employed person has a duty to provide a safe workplace and safe work equipment.

Understand your legal responsibilities for Compressed Air

Once it is installed, the user has primary responsibility for the pressure system. Employers' duties in relation to the pressure system include ensuring the design and construction is fit for purpose and complies with all applicable regulations. Sufficient written information must be provided concerning the design, construction, examination, operation and maintenance of the system.

Are you working safely around pressure systems and equipment?

If compressed air pressurised systems or equipment fails in use, it can seriously injure or kill. Once it is installed,  the user has primary responsibility for the pressure system, in particular:

  • Training and safe operation
  • Maintenance
  • Action in case of emergency
  • Safe operating limits
  • Written scheme of examination
  • Periodic examination of system
  • Keeping records
