Machinery inspection

Since 1998 it has been a requirement by the Health & Safety Executive that all lifting equipment and lifting operations are annually inspected. This includes Farm Machinery such as Telehandlers, Fork Lift Trucks and Tractor Fore-End Loaders.

Our team of highly skilled and competent agricultural inspection engineers have all undergone extensive training and all are certified by Lloyds British.
Through our engineering services we aim to:

• conduct a thorough examination of your lifting equipment to comply with PUWER and LOLER standards as required by the Health and Safety Executive.
• provide an independent report detailing the general condition and wear and tear of your equipment.
• advise where preventative maintenance could be carried out with a view to reducing costly repairs and extending the life of your machinery & maximising trade in values.
