Professional Escalator Inspectors

What are escalator inspections?

Escalator inspections abide by the set of statutory guidelines prepared by the Safety Assessment Federation (in consultation with HSE) which explain the best practices to ensure your escalators and moving walkways are kept in peak condition for the safe travel of passengers. Our inspections involve risk assessment, preventive maintenance, testing, inspection and thorough examination of escalators and moving walkways. All of these assets are deemed as ‘critical to ensure longevity, reliability and, above all, safety’ in accordance with SAFed Guidelines for the safe operation of escalators and moving walks.

How often do I need an escalator inspection?

Although escalator inspections do not fall within LOLER regulations, SAFed detailed guidelines clearly state a thorough examination of escalators and moving walkways is recommended every six-months. Therefore we always recommend following these guidelines to ensure your escalators remain in safe condition and increase its lifespan with inspection and maintenance every six months.
