In the event of your lifting equipment failing an inspection; PG Latham & Co Ltd can arrange transport of the equipment to our site where it will undergo a controlled repair process, be subjected to a proof load test to ISO standards and returned to your site in the shortest turnaround time possible.
Also, because all of our services are done in-house, our turnaround time quotes are accurate which allows our customers to make an accurate assessment of equipment downtime periods.
How Preventative NDT Inspections can grow your business
A safe and productive workforce
A Forklift Truck, its lifting equipment and attachments represent a major investment and these assets need to be properly maintained to operate efficiently. Well-maintained lifting equipment and forklift trucks provide organisations with a safe and productive work environment whilst creating lasting value.
Prevention is better than a cure
We provide Preventative NDT Inspections, which are a schedule of planned condition monitoring operations aimed at the prevention of breakdowns and failures. The primary goal of our NDT Inspections is to prevent the failure of equipment before it actually occurs.
Preserve and enhance
Our services are designed to preserve and enhance lifting equipment reliability by replacing worn components, repairing cracked components or welds and structurally modifying equipment before a failure occurs. This includes: thorough inspection of lifting equipment, partial or complete Magnetic Particle inspection (crack testing) at specified intervals and record management.
Reduces call out costs
In addition, our engineers report equipment deterioration so your organisation will know to replace or repair deteriorating equipment before it causes catastrophic failure.
It is the most cost effective way of staying in compliance with LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998) and extending the lifecycle of existing machinery.
Our Preventative NDT Inspections greatly reduce emergency call out costs and the emergency use of unreliable contractors. They also cause less disruption to your workforce and are a much better alternative to risking lengthy periods of downtime or an incident involving the HSE.
