Lifting Appliance and Lifting Gear Inspection

Safe, reliable and successful lifting operations highly depend on a comprehensive inspection strategy for lifting equipment

At Axess Group, inspections of lifting equipment are performed and documented according to statutory, class and company requirements. Our inspections have the necessary external and internal approvals to perform the inspections and the control according to valid requirements for the specific equipment type or category. Approved procedures and checklists covering the scope of work of the specific inspection are used and the results are documented on Equip, one of the modules of our inspection software, as well as our clients’ systems when applicable.
