In-Service Verification of Lifting Equipment

Checking lifting equipment to ensure safe operation and avoid accidents

Lifting Equipment Challenge

Deaths and injuries in the workplace are still a continuing problem in every industrialized nation. 

To ensure safer conditions for workers who are in contact with high risk equipment demands strict controls. Installations need to be checked regularly. Indeed, it is the only way to ensure that installations comply with regulations, thus minimizing risk.

What is Lifting Equipment Inspection?

Lifting Equipment inspection involves a series of tests performed on load-handling devices such as cranes, derricks, forklifts, shackles and hooks. 

Using competent technicians, Bureau Veritas plans lifting operations to ensure that the lifting equipment is suitable for the tasks it has to perform; to ensure that the lifting operation will not endanger people nearby; and to assess inspection requirements for the lifting equipment and accessories. 

Regular thorough examinations of all equipment are carried out by qualified technicians.
