According to the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Regulations of 2007, all lifting equipment such as excavators, backhoe loaders, skid steers and telehandler are to be inspected and tested every 6 months or annually. GA1 lifting equipment inspections are certified with a GA1 Certificate, previously known as CR2/CR4.
What is Lifting Equipment?
Lifting equipment is any piece of equipment that lifts and lowers loads such as backhoes. Lifting equipment also includes an accessory that can be attached to a piece of equipment in order to be used for lifting and lowering. (For a complete list, click here.)
Each piece of equipment has different inspection requirements. You can use the Appendix in this document to ensure that your company is in compliance with GA1 lifting equipment inspections.
GA1 Lifting Equipment Inspections
At Safeplant, we carry out GA1 Lifting Equipment Inspections at your place of business to ensure that you are in compliance with LOLAR (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations). Once an inspection is completed, you will receive a copy of the report and a sticker to display on your machine. If the machine is found to be non-compliant, the faults found will be provided in a written report on how to bring the equipment up to code. For more information, call us or request a call back.
