Consultancy and Advisory 

The inspection is specifically to identify defects which are or may become a danger to persons so that they can be rectified. 
Ideally these should be rectified as soon as possible, however, some are more important than others and so defects are categorised according to the severity of defect. 
wWhen they need to be rectified and whether they must be reported to the enforcing authority (In certain cases this is a legal requirement and is required whether the defect is rectified at the time or not.). 

Inspection Services 

When we provide ‘inspection services’ and our Engineer Surveyor (also known as the ‘Competent Person’) would make an appointment, confirm availability of the equipment and on arrival provide identification and complete any formal health and safety site requirements.  
A site risk assessment would be carried out on the equipment, ensuring firstly that it is safe to examine and, secondly, identifying the safety critical parts, considering the type and complexity, risks involved, use, age, condition, servicing state, repairs carried out, environment and other aspects relevant to the continued safety of the equipment.  
This will determine the scope of inspection, which would include a thorough visual examination of accessible parts of the item, focused on those safety critical components and their potential for failure, mechanical or electrical safety devices designed to protect persons and functional testing as appropriate.  
Where Engineer Surveyors cannot be assured, for example hidden load bearing components, they may call for additional supplementary tests. These would be more intrusive and normally carried out by the equipment servicing company or specialist testing organisation eg NDT.
