What Does PSSR Mean?

PSSR is an abbreviation of Pressure Systems Safety Regulations (2000). The PSSR regulations came into force on 21 February 2000.

If you’ve been wondering what exactly PSSR is and how these regulations affect your business, read on for more information.

What Are the PSSR Regulations?

Employers must ensure a safe workplace under the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974). The PSSR 2000 is important for owners and users to follow. It is crucial to comply with the latest regulations.

Before using any qualifying pressure equipment, pressure systems must be checked according to a Written Scheme of Examination (WSE). PSSR rules require this. The aim of these regulations is to prevent serious injury from the hazard of stored energy. This could come as a result of the failure of a pressure system or one of its component parts.
