Home - What are our obligations when hiring plant?
August 04, 2022 on chapter Plant safety

We are looking at hiring plant for use in our storeroom. What measures should we take from a health and safety standpoint?

When hiring new plant, you must ensure the plant is safe to operate and that your workers know how to use the plant safely. To do this, you should:

  • perform a risk assessment before using the plant to make sure it can be operated safely;
  • undertake a pre-start assessment to detect any malfunctioning with the plant’s operations (any equipment that does not meet the safety assessment checks should be returned to the hiring business); and
  • ensure the plant has specific operating instructions. Ask the hiring business to provide training if necessary.
