Inspection of Work and Lifting Equipment in compliance with the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work (General Applications) Regulations 2007.

Work Equipment means any machinery appliance, apparatus, tool or installation for use at work.

Lifting Equipment means work equipment for lifting, lowering loads or pile driving and includes anything used for anchoring, fixing or supporting such equipment.

It is a requirement of the Regulation that where defects are found during a thorough examination which will require an immediate cessation of work, then such defective equipment must be reported to the enforcing authority.

Whilst not included in legislation, we would recommend that any Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) systems should be examined by a competent person.
