Did you know that your espresso machine should comply with statutory regulations of the Health and Safety at work act 1974, the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR 2000) state that any pressure vessel should be periodically examined in accordance with a 'Written Scheme of Examination' by a competent person. The approved code of practice (ACOP) gives guidance to the requirements of a competent person.
To comply the key roles of the Boiler Inspection are:
i) testing the mechanical safety device operates correctly in the case of an emergency or malfunction.
ii) internally inspecting the condition and integrity of the steam/hot water boiler.
iii) examining pipework and pipelines.
All espresso machines details i.e. serial numbers, makes, models are listed, mechanical devices are tested against calibrated gauges. Urban Espresso's engineers will only work with machines of which we have extensive knowledge and obtain manufacturers specifications such as designed boiler temperatures, max pressures and max working pressures.
Written scheme of examination
8.—(1) The user of an installed system and owner of a mobile system shall not operate the system or allow it to be operated unless he has a written scheme for the periodic examination, by a competent person, of the following parts of the system, that is to say–
(a)all protective devices;
(c)those parts of the pipework in which a defect may give rise to danger,
(2) The said user or owner shall–
(ii)the content of the scheme is modified in accordance with any recommendations made by that competent person arising out of that review.
(a)specifies the nature and frequency of examination;
(c)where appropriate, provides for an examination to be carried out before the pressure system is used for the first time.
(4) References in paragraphs (2) and (3) to the suitability of the scheme are references to its suitability for the purposes of preventing danger from those parts of the pressure system included in the scheme.
28 The term ‘competent person’ is used in connection with two distinct
(a) drawing up or certifying schemes of examination (regulation 8); and
(b) carrying out examinations under the scheme (regulation 9).
