When lifting heavy loads safety should never be compromised, this is why selecting the correct lifting equipment supplier is essential. Lifting Equipment Store always ship applicable lifting equipment products with certificates of conformity.
It is a safety requirement to ensure all equipment is correctly maintained and inspected annually When equipment is inspected the certificate of conformity is re-newed, this is valid for one year. If the equipment does not conform maintenance work or disposal maybe necessary.
If you are ever unsure about the status of lifting equipment certification i recommend not using the equipment until documented evidence is provided in the form of an inspection or previous valid certificate.
