It is a statutory
requirement that all lifting equipment (including chains, straps,
shackles and hooks) is annually tested and certified as safe and
fit for purpose. The period for testing any lifting equipment on
which persons ride is six months.
Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER)
These Regulations place duties on people and companies who own,
operate or have control over work equipment. PUWER also places
responsibilities on businesses and organisations whose employees
use work equipment, whether owned by them or not.
NE Attachments will inspect, test and certify your
equipment, and carry out any necessary repairs. Under health and
safety legislation it is your responsibility to ensure that
the necessary inspections are carried out. We offer a full service
in this respect, and will log all testing results, and issue
timely reminders when the testing of your equipment is due.
The full regulations are long and involved.
We will gladly visit your site and advise as to what needs
testing, and at what intervals. Why not
contact us today for a full and comprehensive survey, or
to book testing.
