Requirement for periodic expert inspection

Pursuant to Regulation No. 1357, Performance of Work, there is a requirement for periodic expert inspection of work equipment, such as cranes and lifting equipment, forklifts, passenger lifts, mass moving machines, hengestillas, construction site elevators and stage/studio equipment.

Expert inspection of work equipment shall be carried out:

  • Every 12 months
  • When the work equipment has not been in use for the last 6 months and it may endanger life or health when it is to be used again
  • When, due to the environment in which the work equipment is placed, more frequent inspections are required
  • When the work equipment has been subjected to significant overload, and after major repairs or alterations.

We carry out periodic inspections of ladders and racks as required by authorities and applicable standards for the equipment and document findings with images.

This applies to both expert control of studio and stage rigs and control in accordance with the Internal Control Regulations.

To ensure the safety of users, periodic checks are required.
