Engineering Inspections for Plant & Construction Users
F&M’s engineering division
F&M’s engineering division was established in 2009 as a direct response to the requirement of a dedicated testing and inspection service from industry experienced, skilled and competent inspection engineers. All F&M inspection engineers undergo extensive and ongoing training and all are certified by Lloyds British. This ensures F&M engineers are fully conversant with latest compliance standards, and therefore clients meet all requirements of the Health & Safety Executive.
With one of the highest fatal injury statistics of any industry in the UK, it has never been more crucial for the construction sector to ensure fully qualified engineering inspections are implemented and meet Health and Safety Executive (HSE) regulations.
Over the last five years there has been an average of 43 fatal injuries per year to workers in the construction industry. Unwise risk-taking is an underlying problem. However much experience an employer and operator may have, accidents can still happen, specifically those relating to machinery failure.
Inspecting machinery and maintaining inspection renewals is crucial to the delivery of a safe and effective working environment, and it is essential this work is undertaken by qualified and experienced engineers, fully conversant with the latest HSE regulations.
