Lifting Equipment Inspection & Certification

VELOSI is one of the few companies that are fully accredited by UKAS for the Inspection and Certification of lifting equipments inspected for Legislative or Health and Safety reasons.

The services that VELOSI provides, both for onshore and offshore locations include:


 Written Schemes of Examination

 Supervision of critical lifts
 Manufacturing Certification and Inspection
 Verify Commissioning Procedures and witness Commissioning test

 Periodic Inspections and Re-Certification

We carry out inspections in accordance to the local country statutory regulations like the The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) in UK. These Regulations usually apply to all premises and work situations that are subject to local Health & Safety laws.

The Regulations are primarily aimed at lifting equipment such as cranes, lifts, and hoists, but it also covers lifting accessories such as chains, wire ropes, slings, hooks, shackles and eye bolts.

We will review your equipment specifications and advise you on the inspection requirements. If no local legislation applies, we can assist with assessing the equipment inspection requirements, including periodicity, by using best practice and international codes and standards

VELOSI is able to carry out full equipment assessments. Once this is completed, an electronic management control system tracks and monitors each item for its inspection status before certification can be implemented. This is normally done using an electronic tagging system that can be tailored to a client’s need. Also, VELOSI can implement a colour-coded tagging system which is changed periodically in line with inspection regime so that equipment whose inspection and certification is out-of-date is easily identified and placed into quarantine until the inspection and certification has been completed. To ensure a high level quality inspection service, VELOSI is a member of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA). All VELOSI surveyors are qualified LEEA engineers.
