Hoist Servicing

Importance of routine servicing

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 wear of essential components before they fail reduces the risk of breakdowns. Breakdowns are always inconvenient, expensive and are best avoided!

Whilst everyday checks are important, a thorough service to the manufacturers specification will examine components that are located within the equipment, not normally visible. Therefore it is essential that a full service is carried out to detect wear and tear on any moving parts.

Avoid emergencies

Nobody wants an emergency situation in their establishment. Such situations can lead to an unsettling of the staff and the users, and possibly an incident which may have to be reported. A pro-active servicing program will ensure that emergency incidents are avoided, leading to greater confidence for your staff, patients and insurers.


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.
