Pressure Equipment Inspections

factory1Regular Inspections are required to ensure ongoing safety of plant.

Owners of boilers and pressure vessels (pressure equipment) have an ongoing obligation (duty of care) to ensure that their plant is maintained in a safe operational condition for its service life, and that they have in place a safe system of work associated with that plant.

Regular checks, relevant tests and maintenance inspections are to be conducted at intervals as required by the manufacturer or a code of practice (where one exists).

These checks, relevant tests and maintenance inspection should be recorded for the service life of the item of plant. 

Fixed plant inspections are required before being placed in service in the workplace for the first time, after being returned to service following major structural repairs, after being relocated, or when significant alteration or addition are made to pressure retaining parts. Similarly, inspections are needed at intervals specified by a code of practice (where one exists), or as determined by the manufacturer.

Following inspection you will either be issued a certificate of inspection, or a notice of corrective actions required to enable certification.
