In the UK, it’s a legal requirement for lifting equipment to meet standards set by the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) and the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER).
These standards require the owner of the lifting equipment to have a certificate of examination by a competent person declaring the equipment safe to use. This also helps to ensure the equipment is correctly maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
We offer nationwide service and maintenance programmes for Penny Hydraulics equipment. This means that you can keep your business moving and stay on the right side of the law. Whether you have a fault or are due your annual service, Penny Hydraulics is on hand.
As we only service our own products, our first-time fix rate is near perfect, with common spares available immediately on-site.
We offer two planned maintenance programmes, Standard and Fully Comprehensive.
All our service agreements cover a minimum of one year’s servicing to ensure you meet regulations with annual checks. We also provide ‘thorough examinations’ – a statutory requirement that needs to be carried out every six or twelve months.
Plus, all planned maintenance programmes provide compliance with current UK legislation under PUWER and if necessary.
