HSE publishes guidance on restarting pressure systems

The HSE has published guidance on restarting workplace pressure systems safely following the coronavirus outbreak.  Pressure systems can be standalone or part of individual machines, processes and site (ancillary) services and include:

  • steam boilers
  • air compressors and receivers
  • industrial refrigeration systems
  • hydraulic cylinders for vehicle and passenger lifts
  • articulated jibs

There are also steam reservoirs in some café boilers, steam cleaners and solvent recovery vessels forming part of dry cleaning processes.
