Cranes – Testing & Inspections

Worksites present a number of safety hazards and dangerous and additional precautions are required when working with cranes. Crane accidents can be particularly devastating and result in expensive damages, severe injury and even death. Crane inspections and testing are essential and required by law to ensure they are operating safely. Under Irish law, the Safety, Health and Welfare at work (General Applications) 2007, cranes must be inspected and certified annually to remain compliant, or L.O.L.E.R (lifting operations and lifting equipment regulations) for the UK and Northern Ireland.

Once the inspection and testing of your crane equipment is complete, you will receive a GA1 Form, Report of Thorough Examination, certifying your crane is compliant with Irish standards or UK standards if applicable. If inspection and testing identify defects, you will receive a report of what needs to be rectified before you can gain certification. All inspections, certification and renewal dates are logged on our online portal, which provides you with access anytime with a secure ID. We are more than happy to discuss your report and provide advice about compliance and safety requirements to ensure your crane equipment meets the required standards.
