    How to prevent hoist breakdowns in one easy step

    13th March 2019

    Prevent breakdowns

    The well planned routine servicing and preventive maintenance of moving and handling equipment is essential to reduce the chance of failure, breakdowns and potential accidents. Assessing the condition and also the wear of essential components before they fail reduces the risk of breakdowns. Breakdowns are very inconvenient, expensive and are always best avoided!

    By simply making one easy step of setting up a servicing and maintenance programme you can prevent those unwanted breakdowns. You can remove the hassle of remembering when your equipment needs servicing by taking out a healthcare equipment servicing contract with Multicare. Using our software system we advise you when your equipment needs servicing; and then attend site at your convenience to complete the works – one less thing for you to think about!

    Our engineers are fully trained to service and maintain all types of equipment. This helps you to consolidate suppliers, reduce costs, and your staff and users can feel safe. The servicing and service contracts can be tailored to your specific needs.


    We are all well aware of the risks that are associated with student moving and handling procedures. Ensuring that any equipment, for such procedures, is fully serviced, maintained and inspected for safe use is extremely important. Whether it be a patient, student, resident, nurse or carer, safety is critical during moving and handling procedures. Accidents during procedures can result in injuries or even worse still fatalities.

    Stay compliant

    By law any lifting equipment must be inspected in accordance with the LOLER regulations (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations) . These regular inspections and maintenance must be carried out by a competent person, in order to meet these regulations.
