Professional Crane Inspections

What is a ‘crane inspection’?

In accordance with LOLER regulations, it’s imperative to conduct regular, thorough examinations of lifting equipment, including cranes, by individuals deemed sufficiently competent. At AV Statutory Inspections, we fulfil this requirement by providing comprehensive inspection and testing services for cranes, ensuring they meet legal safety standards and comply with government regulations.

How regularly do I need crane inspections?

Under LOLER 1998, lifting equipment, including cranes, must undergo inspection every 12 months, with lifting accessories requiring examination every 6 months. Therefore, if you operate cranes along with additional accessories, regular inspections are necessary to ensure ongoing safety and compliance.

At AV Statutory Inspections, our commitment to excellence extends beyond the inspection itself. We understand that each crane and its operating environment is unique, which is why we take the time to develop a pre-contractual plan tailored to your specific requirements. This plan outlines the approach we will take during the inspection process, ensuring transparency and clarity every step of the way. From assessing access points to determining the most suitable testing methods, our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive overview of our inspection strategy before any work begins. Once the plan is in place, our experienced technicians will seamlessly implement our testing methods, adhering to industry best practices and regulatory standards to ensure the thoroughness and accuracy of our inspections.


Upon the completion of each crane inspection, we understand the importance of providing our clients with documented evidence of the work carried out. That’s why we issue a detailed certificate that serves as tangible proof of the inspection process and its outcomes. This certificate includes comprehensive information about the inspection, including the date and location of the inspection, details of the crane inspected, a summary of the testing methods used, and the findings of the inspection. By providing you with this certificate, we aim to give you peace of mind knowing that your crane has been thoroughly assessed and is in compliance with all relevant regulations. Additionally, this documentation serves as a valuable record for your company’s internal records and regulatory compliance purposes.
