Proof load testing and certification
All lifting equipment, lifting tackle and lifting structures should have undergone Proof Load Testing. This can be undertaken as part of the Certificate of Conformity for items carrying CE identification, otherwise a Certificate of Proof Load Test should be available. The Test Certificate will show the proof load the item has been loaded to (basically an overload test) and the Working Load Limit (WLL) or Safe Working Load (SWL).
Etiss is able to undertake proof load testing of all types of equipment, please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements further.
Periodic Thorough Examinations should then follow through the life of the equipment.
