All of this equipment is subject to examination by law as it uses local exhaust ventilation system equipment (LEV) so needs to comply with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health 2002 Regulations (CoSHH). We undertake LEV examinations to suit you, ensuring that any disruption to your business is minimal.
If your business uses cranes, jibs or any other lifting equipment you need to ensure that it’s regularly tested in line with the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER). Our experienced, qualified personnel carry out LOLER lifting plant and equipment examinations for you and advise on the frequency of retesting.
We also undertake PUWER testing. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 covers work machinery used in a working environment and includes guillotines, escalators, climbing equipment, rollers and much more.
You can find details of the equipment needing LOLER or PUWER examination by visiting our website.
Pressure systems are subject to statutory testing by law which must be undertaken prior to their first use. We can help you work out a schedule to ensure that your pressure systems are tested regularly to ensure they are fully compliant with Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR). Some of the equipment subject to pressure system examination includes: air receivers, steam generators, café and hot water boilers and autoclaves. Once the examination is complete you will receive a written report of our inspection with details of our next visit.
Load bearing equipment is subject to regular testing and the experts at Hutcheon Examination Services are on hand to help with any questions you may have as well as carrying out testing to suit you with minimal fuss and disturbance to your business. Load testing can be carried out on new equipment installations, modified or repaired machinery or existing plant. Regular load testing means peace of mind for you when it comes to health and safety.
