Plant Inspection Services provide an extensive range of in-service thorough examinations, inspection and testing services to help clients meet their obligations and comply with current UK legislation.
With over 30 years in the industry provinding inspection services throughout the UK, we are proud of our reputation for quality. Our aim is to build long-term, mutually beneficial relationships and provide a personal, reliable inspection service to each of our clients.
We believe that those carrying out the examinations should be independent. Plant Inspection Services are a type A inspection body as defined in ISO17020. We do not supply, install or maintain; which eliminates any possible conflict of interest.
Our staff are chosen for their combination of technical qualifications, experience, and expertise, which enable them to react quickly and appropriately to real-life situations.
Our lifting and pressure engineers are affiliated with the Bureau of Engineer Surveyors and the Society of Operations Engineers. Our local exhaust ventilation specialists are P601 (BOHS) qualified and are affiliated with the Institute of Local Exhaust Ventilation Engineers.
All our engineers are actively encouraged to participate in Continuous Professional Development by attending technical seminars, delivered both in-house and by external technical bodies.
The inspections we carry out are ‘Thorough Examinations’, a term defined by the HSE as “a systematic and detailed examination of the equipment and safety-critical parts, carried out at specified intervals by a competent person who must then complete a written report”. Owners and users of equipment should be aware that the examinations we provide are a legal requirement and without up to date examination reports, they could face legal issues and prosecution.
Our procedures and systems ensure equipment is examined in a consistent and thorough manner, and that reports are delivered efficiently. Our bespoke database stores all contract details and reports, allowing us to:
- Provide clear concise documentation
- Issue reports by email or hard copy
- Diarise and notify inspection due dates
- Provide a comprehensive back-up, should copies be required
Our team will ensure a hassle-free and cost effective examination service from quotation to contract renewal.
