Air Compressor Risk Assessment

All UK employers have a legal duty to ensure an adequate air compressor risk assessment has been conducted if their business uses air compressor equipment.

We can provide you with qualified consultants who will ensure that your business is fully compliant with UK law.

Following the Pressure Equipment Regulations 1999, all UK businesses which use air compressor equipment must complete an air compressor risk assessment, prior to work commencing. This is a legal requirement.

In the event that an adequate air compressor risk assessment has not been conducted, the employer will be held accountable. Consequences for not complying with the pressure equipment regulations can be severe, taking the form of heavy fines and even jail terms. Therefore, it is essential that if your business uses air compressor equipment, you undertake a risk assessment now.

Conducting an air compressor risk assessment for your business

According to government guidance, an air compressor risk assessment should include a consideration of the following factors:

  • The pressure in the system
  • How suitable the equipment and pipework is
  • The age and condition of the air compressor
  • How complex operating the equipment is
  • The level of competence of the people who maintain, test and operate the air compressor.

In order to ensure an adequate air compressor risk assessment has been completed, it is crucial that a competent person conducts the assessment. A competent person will have the necessary skills and experience of working with compression systems and will have the required qualifications to issue guidance and training.
