Statutory Inspections of plant and equipment - Update and Guidance

As businesses are now encouraged to return to work there are obviously many considerations for both employer and employee. Our recent bulletin covered the re-opening of premises after the period of lockdown and offered a series of recommended property checks to help a smooth return to operations. The working environment needs to be carefully considered and new safe systems implemented to allow for the likes of social distancing, hygiene and cleaning facilities etc.

During the exceptional circumstances presented by the Covid-19 outbreak, Engineering Inspection Service Providers have had to carefully consider the delivery of their service taking account of HSE guidelines, the available resource along with the safeguarding of their employees. Many of the providers also sought to prioritise their work in support of essential services and this will lead to delays in inspecting plant and equipment which could mean some plant not being certified.
