Safety is paramount for any work involving lifting and working at heights. To keep your team safe, and business operating smoothly, regular testing, and inspection of lifting and height safety equipment is essential.

Find out how Steel & Tube's Mobile Testing team can lighten the load of compliance for your organisation.
The Importance and Benefits of Regular Testing
Safety for many businesses heavily relies on the integrity of lifting and height safety equipment, including chains, ropes, hoists, and other lifting devices, as well as personal protective equipment such as harnesses and fall arrest devices. Over time, these components can wear due to the stresses they endure, potentially leading to catastrophic failures if not adequately maintained and tested.
Regular inspection and testing help identify and rectify any weaknesses or defects on this equipment before they lead to accidents or injuries and it provides peace of mind, knowing that your team can perform their tasks safely.
In addition to the safety of your team, the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 sets out clear expectations and requirements on the care, use and inspection of lifting and height safety equipment. Failing to comply with these regulations can result in fines, legal liabilities, and damage to your organisation's reputation. Timely testing and maintenance can extend the lifespan of your equipment, reducing the need for costly replacements and downtime. Preventing accidents and equipment failures through regular testing can save your organisation significant costs associated with injuries, equipment replacement, and operational disruptions.
