Welcome to Safe Plant Certification

Certification Services for Machinery and Lifting Equipment

Safe Plant Certification Ltd are experts in providing you with all the practical answers on how you can receive a GA1 Certificate, (formerly CR2/CR4 and Certificate of thorough Examination) with minimum downtime and disruption to your busy schedule. Safe Plant Certification Ltd began providing services in counties Wexford, Carlow, Kildare, Wicklow and Dublin.  We now provide a nationwide service.

Firstly it is important to note that all equipment has to undergo this mandatory testing and inspection in accordance with the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007. You may tell us that your insurance company can visit your site but they do not test your equipment in order to issue a GA1 Certificate of Compliance therefore it is vital that you contact an experienced company to inspect and test your construction equipment in order to ensure it is maintained and safe to use by law.

The GA1 Certificate is valid for twelve months and it is required that construction site machinery such as mini diggers, skid steers, and evacuators 360 among others undergoes this procedure. It is required that brake quarry testing and certain lifting equipment should also legally be tested every six months and the majority of plant machinery should be tested every twelve months. Safe Plant Certification Ltd can also offer brake tests on mobile equipment such as dumpers and forklifts and all earth-moving and materials-handling and lifting equipment under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations-LOLER. We also offer Manual Handling Courses and Abrasive Wheel courses.
