During inspection, our Engineer Surveyor will be looking for signs of deterioration/ wear & tear, or any physical/environmental factors which may affect the safe operation of the machine.
If we find a defect which is liable to cause imminent danger to people, or damage to property, we will explain this to you and ask you to sign a 'Defect Form' to acknowledge the situation. We will leave a copy of this with you. Once the inspection is complete, the Engineer Surveyor will issue an electronic report which will be forwarded to your email address.
If there is a serious defect we are required by law to forward a copy of this to the local enforcing authority.
In some instances, you will be required to take the machine out of service until it has been repaired; however, this will be clearly stated on the report. This is to ensure your safety and that of your employees.
If the Engineer Surveyor is inspecting your pressure and/or steam plant for the first time, he will issue a Written Scheme of Examination (WSE) as required by The Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000. We do not charge for undertaking this examination. The WSE should be made available to the Engineer Surveyor at each subsequent visit. We will, however, maintain a copy of the WSE on our electronic reporting system as a back up to your own records.
