Inspection lifting equipment

Posted on 9-12-2020 by Nicky

This section provides a general overview of the minimum periods for inspection, and testing of lifting equipment used by certified EKH companies.

As mentioned in the introduction, these correspond to the minimum terms specified per product or product group. All mentioned terms are to be used as minimum terms but must be adjusted (shortened) at all times in case of very intensive or rough use, in accordance with the instructions included by the manufacturer in the user manual. In the overview below, if an inspection with testing must be carried out (both for the annual and 4-yearly inspection), the test load to be used is indicated in percentage group.
