Safety is our business and together we can improve standards, awareness and safety

The CoffeeSafe partnership helps you offer your customers further compliance with the statutory Pressure Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR) by helping to maintain the safety of traditional espresso, bean to cup and self-serve vending coffee machines.

The Pressure Systems Regulations 2000 (PSSR 2000) legislation require that statutory examinations are carried out at regular intervals. This can be provided to your client base in addition to your existing service and maintenance offering.
