Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR)

The duties imposed by PSSR relate to pressure systems for use at work and the risk to health/safety.

The aim of these Regulations is to prevent serious injury from the hazard of stored energy as a result of the failure of a pressure system or one of its component parts.

Before using any qualifying pressure equipment, a written scheme of examination (WSE) must be in place, and an examination undertaken.

Pressure systems are defined as:

  • a system comprising one or more pressure vessels of rigid construction, any associated pipework and protective devices
  • the pipework with its protective devices to which a transportable pressure receptacle is, or is intended to be, connected
  • a pipeline and its protective devices

A written scheme of examination is a document that details safety devices and components associated with the system. It also includes inspection and maintenance requirements for each device or component. Typically it incorporates a schematic drawing illustrating the safety critical components.

Multigas are able to produce a Written scheme of examination for your systems and conduct the examination in accordance with the WSE.

Useful information on the need for a written scheme of examination is presented in this document from the HSE.
