Litestructures offer new truss inspection service

Litestructures is committed to raising safety in our industry through the publication of information, the encouragement of training and sharing of knowledge. As part of this, we are proud to launch a new service (introduced at PLASA 09) by offering a manufacturer approved inspection service to customers old and new.

According to BS7906-2:2000, initial and periodic inspections of truss should be both implemented and recorded, to ensure the safe use of trussing systems and assemblies.

It is also a requirement of LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998), that all parts of a lifting system must be subject to a specific inspection regime. Furthermore, these inspections must be carried out by a qualified person – which can be notoriously difficult to determine or monitor.

Inspection therefore, is often a discipline that is overlooked, and one which Litestructures are delighted to simplify by the provision of a trusted and cost effective service. In managing experienced and qualified technical staff, Litestructures are able to arrange efficient services to work around your business, whilst issuing comprehensive inspection reports for your records.

This service is available from as little as £99, meaning that reassurance need not be expensive…
