S19 - Maintenance & Inspection Of Plant & Equipment

Inspection and maintenance of plant and equipment is a fundamental process that needs to be carried out on all plant and equipment.

The Maintenance and Inspection Procedure outlines what is required in a scheme for maintenance and inspection including:

  • Boundaries
  • Pedestrian and traffic routes
  • Mobile plant (including brake testing), and
  • Static plant (including guarding and structural integrity).

It is further supported by individual procedures in:

  • LV and HV electrical systems
  • Pressure systems
  • Lifting equipment
  • Pedestrian and traffic routes
  • Operator competence, and
  • Welfare and office facilities.

Additionally, there is a series of inspection templates that can be modified so that they are relevant to your operation.
