Tail Lift Services
All Tail lifts are subject to 12-month statutory examination and certification in accordance with the 2007 Safety health and welfare at work regulations. If your lift carries a person at any stage, it is then classified as a passenger lift. It is subject to a different set of regulations – Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Regulations 2007. A thorough inspection is required every 6 months for a passenger lift. Our experienced engineers carry out this examination with a detailed report into the overall condition of the tail lift. Cert’s are supplied to hold for your records.
Tail lifts should be weight tested every 12 months. A weight test consists of placing static weights of the maximum capacity of the tail lift on the platform while it is fully extended at the loading deck height. An additional weight of 25% of the capacity is then placed on the lift. In addition, our qualified engineers will check for vertical descent and angle distortion. We provide certification with every annual Weight Test for your records.
