Atlas Repairs provides fully comprehensive service facilities from its workshops in West Thurrock but most servicing is arranged to take place at customer’s premises at a time convenient to the vehicles availability.
LOLER (Lifting Operations and loading equipment regulations 1998) click here which relates to the health and safety at work regulations for all lifting equipment.
These regulations should be read in conjunction with “Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 PUWER” click this link click here for details on PUWER Whilst an annual weight test is not legally required all the major tail lift manufacturers recommend that it is completed annually to prove the lift is performing safely and correctly.
Manufacturers also recommend a weight test is carried out after any major repair to a tail lift again to prove it is operating safely and correctly. LOLER & Weight Certificates should be retained, as they may be called by the authorities in the event of a HSE accident investigation. Atlas Repairs system also retains copies of these certificates and can reproduce copies if required.
Some customers require servicing on a pay as you go basis and others prefer a contract approach. A Maintenance plan can be set up by Atlas so that it is arranged in a timely fashion. Whilst the validity of a LOLER is for a maximum of 6 months (twice annually) some customers want their heavily used equipment serviced and examined more frequently at 3 or 4 month intervals. Atlas Repairs system can be programmed so to trigger reminders and Atlas then make contact in advance, so that the work is agreed and arranged in advance.
These Contracts are tailored to customers requirements to arrange servicing, LOLER inspections and weight tests at the required frequency and can also be set up to cover full R&M to include all parts and repairs for wear and tear including travel. All contracts have the advantage of a regular payment plan which simplifies budgeting etc.Contact us for more details.
