Inspection Services

Focused on helping our customers reduce their engineering risks and optimise the efficiency of their plant and equipment

Periodic engineering inspections on plant and equipment operated in the workplace can help maintain a safe operating environment, and add value by helping the business operate efficiently; whilst also ensuring employer conformity to applicable health and safety legislation.

Failure to comply with the law can have serious consequences for a business. Risks can include damage to a business’s reputation, a reduction in workforce efficiency, increased risk of accidents and ill health, and even enforcement by regulators; which, ultimately, can lead to heavy fines or even imprisonment.
