We can provide engineering inspections for all the areas listed below, covering a large range of plant equipment, tackle, pressure and extraction systems and portable appliance testing. Don't worry if your equipment isn't listed below, please contact us and we can give you more information and quotes on pricing.
Lifting Equipment (LOLER)
LOLER requires that all equipment used for lifting is fit for purpose, appropriate for the task, suitably marked and, in many cases, subject to statutory periodic 'thorough examination'. Records must be kept of all thorough examinations and any defects found must be reported to both the person responsible for the equipment and the relevant enforcing authority.
We provide inspections for all types of lifting equipment, including:
Lifting Tackle (Slings, Shackles, Eyebolts etc).
Cranes (Mobile, overhead travelling etc).
Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV)
Effective LEV or dust/fume extraction can carry airbourne contaminants, before they can be breathed in.We cover all types of LEV system and complete Thorough Examination reports to comply with current standards.
This video created by the HSE, details what a LEV system does.
Minor Pressure Systems
You must have a written scheme of examination before you can legally operate any pressure system. Most businesses believe that having a written scheme establishes compliance with the regualtions, this is not the case, as it only complies with regulation 8, out of a total of 18 regulations. We are able to provide you with professional advice about how to comply with regulations to keep your business safe.
We inspect all minor pressure systems, including:
We also produce written schemes of examination.
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
Portable appliance testing (PAT) is the term used to describe the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. Most electrical safety defects can be found by visual examination but some types of defect can only be found by testing. However, it is essential to understand that visual examination is an essential part of the process because some types of electrical safety defect can't be detected by testing alone.
Current guidelines recommend that:
Office electrical appliances, including computers, printers etc. should be tested within a five year frequency.
Workshop electrical equipment should be tested within a 6 month frequency, due to susceptibility to wear and damage.
Please contact us, for further information and guidance on whether your items are recommended to be inspected and at what frequency.
