LOLER and PUWER regulations require all equipment used for the lifting of people to undergo a thorough service/inspection at least 6 monthly. Inspections are to be performed by a competent person and the findings of the inspections recorded. Any accessories used in lifting should also be inspected every 6 months this would typically be items such as patient slings.
TAG Medical are trained by leading manufacturers to service, inspect, repair and install a variety of patient lifting devices satisfying PUWER AND LOLER requirements. Upon completion reports are issued detailing tests undertaken on each device, each item is clearly labelled with a service sticker for traceability relating back to the individual document.
TAG Medical engineers are trained by manufacturers to install and commission devices before first use, also undertaking site surveys providing advice and ensuring that equipment is suitable for the desired location.
