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
Review and Calculations
and review of lift plans for critical and heavy lifts
Supervision of critical lifts
Manufacturing Certification and Inspection
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and certification is out-of-date is easily identified and placed into quarantine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.
