MARINE SAFETY INSPECTIONS AND TESTS
Aboard ship, using an experienced marine lifting specialist for your statutory tests can make all the difference. We can work quickly and safely without supervision – and communicate easily with engineers on board.
That’s because a seasoned marine lifting engineer brings an awareness of potential hazards, shipping terminology and where to look for installed lifting equipment on board.
The layout and access arrangements for marine lifting equipment is different. We’ve developed ways of testing cranes and overhead beams with awkward access where the usual land-based approaches are impossible.
A dedicated marine lifting testing service
Experience has also taught us how to carry out your tests most effectively. For example, how testing in service is much more efficient than during a refit when cranes and lifting gear are in constant use and access can be difficult.
We can help you to:
- Manage statutory annual inspections and five-year test schedules. Every ship we test receives LEMS: our industry-leading system that makes it easy to ensure – and prove – compliance. And we use colour-coding on all equipment, as visual proof of the inspection status.
- Save time and overhead costs on safety testing. Our accredited engineers can carry out lifting, height safety, means of access and LSA tests in one visit – saving time and money. And with our global customer base, we can often share travel costs across a two or three-ship plan.
- Take care of compliance and regulation. We’re accredited by Lloyds, and also full members of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA). Our methods are always up-to-date with the latest legislation and best practice, giving you total peace of mind.
We’re proud to be the world leader in marine lifting & LSA testing, trusted by leading cruise and ferry lines, commercial shipping companies and superyachts. We’d like to show you why.
