These can be configured to suit a wide range of applications from air conditioning and refrigeration plant to Gantry access for Riggers working within a theatre setting. In each application it is esssential a safe working area & means of access & egress to & from that workplace is provided. Our inspection service for plant platforms can become an integral part of ensuring the safety of your plant platform / gantry.

A vast majority of Plant platforms & Gantries are formed from Open grillage to BS 4592. As such they are classed as a piece of work equipment & require regular inspection under The Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER). This can take the form of a regular visual inspection carried out by a competent person. In the event that an independant third party is required to undertake this inspection – Eurosafe Solutions can take on the role of the competent person.

PUWER regulation 6 specifies the circumstances where inspection is required to ensure healthy and safe conditions are maintained: one circumstance identified is… where work equipment is exposed to conditions causing deterioration liable to result in dangerous situations. Given Grillage walkway / Gantries are often located external to a building or at height – they can often require a regular planned inspection.
