Lifting Equipment Inspections

Lifting Equipment Inspections

Our Site Engineers carry out statutory 6 monthly LOLER inspections to your lifting accessories, including chains, webbing slings, wire ropes, chain block, shackles and many more.

ACDC provide detailed reports and maintaining your company lifting accessory register, on our Online Live Database.

All work is carried out in accordance with the Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations (L.O.L.E.R) 1998.

We work on a strict colour code tagging system so each period the operators know what’s been inspected and fit for use for the current period.

As part of the inspection the technicians may also recommend more appropriate attachments where needed to increase safety such as when a recurrent cause of defect appears.

We can also provide repairs and replacements for attachments that failed the inspection.
