New Service: Lifting equipment thorough examination

Thorough examination in accordance to the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998

Owners and users of lifting equipment must certify that all components which have a bearing on safety have been formally inspected and assessed as being in a safe condition. We offer a systematic and detailed examination of lifting equipment and safety-critical parts.

Our team of Competent persons will carry out the thorough examination of your equipment and issue you with a paper report or provide you with login details for you to access the reports online in real time at any time.

As an alternative to the maximum intervals of 6 and 12 month for periodic thorough examination Competent person can draw up an examination scheme that involves a detailed schedule of checks, appropriate examination techniques and testing requirements, drawn up to suit the operating conditions of a specific item of lifting equipment.

By choosing us as your lifting equipment inspector we`ll manage your LOLER inspection schedule to keep you legally compliant.
