INSPECTION & CALIBRATION
Calibrations and repairs need to be conducted quickly after a threat has been identified. Every employer has a duty under the Safety Health & Welfare at Work Act 2005 to ensure that every item of plant, machinery and equipment used in the workplace must be certified safe to use and pose no threat to the user of such equipment.
Gas Detectors must be calibrated every 180 days to ensure accuracy of readings. Our technician can visit your premises if you have a number of units for calibration or you can arrange to send your unit to us by registered post or courier. Either way calibration and repair will be carried out as quickly as possible and in accordance with manufacturers recommendations.
Working at Heights Equipment such as tripods, winches, harnesses, fall arresters, shock absorbers etc must be inspected for damage to ensure the safety of the user. Damage can be due to tears/breaks, paints, oils, adhesives, cement, corrosion etc all of which can reduce the effectiveness of the equipment. Equipment should be inspected by the user before each use, every week using the GA3 form to record such inspection and then every 6 months or more frequently depending on usage by a competent person. A thorough examination is required at least every 6 month. Our technician can visit your premises if you have a number of items for inspection or you can arrange to send your items to us by registered post or courier.
Full and Escape Breathing Apparatus must be inspected to ensure proper and effective delivery of air to the user.
