Lift Condition Survey

Lift Condition Survey

A Lift Condition Survey will allow you to know the full condition of all aspects of your lift. This significantly, allows informed decisions to be made.

Do you need to understand the life expectancy of the equipment?

Alternatively, do want to know how your lift complies with legislation (H&S and Accessibility).

For example, you wish to know the reasons behind poor performance or reliability.

For these reasons and more, a Lift Condition Survey and report can provide the answers.

Furthermore, a Lift Condition Survey includes a life cycle plan. Significantly, the life cycle plan identifies any costing coming up in the future. Accurate costs where applicable are provided for the short, medium or long term.

Age – Serviceability and Obsolescence

Old equipment is a primary reason behind poor performance and reliability. 

Fifty percent of lifts in the UK are over 20 years old. Obsolescence of components can lead to long, unplanned down time and sudden unexpected expense.

A full Lift Condition Survey will identify

Firstly, how old the equipment is and if obsolescence really is an issue.

Secondly, the present condition and a realistic assessment of serviceability

Thirdly, where modernisation work is required then budget costs will be provided.

Health and Safety

Another key point is that Lift owners/operators have responsibilities under primary legislation to ensure lifts are safe for passengers and for engineers.

Legislations such as-

The Health and Safety at Work Act

The Lifting operation and Lifting Equipment Regulations

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment

A full Lift condition survey report will explain the legal obligations, list any areas of non-compliance and provide budget costs for getting the equipment to comply.
