Statutory Inspections

Olympia Test & Crane Ltd have experience in providing contract inspections to industry for 30 years. Our experience includes inspection programmes for all types of loose and fixed lifting equipment.

Our team of qualified Engineers are equipped with the latest equipment to provide customers with detailed reports that can be delivered both on paper and electronic files via our OTC online web based inspection system.

We offer Inspection and Certification Services, ensuring all registers are kept up to date and legal obligations met. Olympia Colour Code Systems can be implemented for safe working:- a Colour Code System gives customers advance warning of any necessary repairs and items which have been missed.

LOLER (Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations) 1998 replaced nearly all earlier lifting legislation. This earlier legislation was concerned with cranes and other lifting machines but had narrow definitions (e.g. excluding Forklift Trucks as lifting machines). Loler overcomes some of these problems.
