When lifts or machines suffer a breakdown or another form of loss or damage it can result in unexpected and costly repair bills, not to mention a source of frustration or inconvenience.
LOLER – Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 – states that a Passenger lift should be inspected every 6 months.
A Machinery Options Policy can combine an inspection service with insurance cover. In the event of sudden and unforeseen damage occurring, policies can cover the cost of repair or replacement of the inspected machinery.
Most claims fall under two categories:
Accidental Damage and Mechanical Breakdown. Cover includes such examples as vandalism, short circuiting and impact damage.
What to expect from your inspection?
An inspection will be performed by an Insurance Approved qualified engineer who may also provide advice on maintenance and usage.
A certificate will be issued following the inspection, highlighting any faults or defects that need fixing.
If anything is considered to be dangerous, it may result in the plant being taken out of service until it is repaired – protecting your liability.
