By their nature premises in this sector are used by the vulnerable and equipment must be safe to operate at all times. We can ensure that owners and duty holders have independent examinations carried out on a wide range of equipment that not only ensures that they comply with the law but, more importantly, operate safely to protect all persons.

To ensure compliance with statutory obligation with the plant and equipment used in educational establishments CTS Safety can support and ensure that all inspections and examinations are carried out with the timeframes required. We can also provide guidance on what equipment needs to be examined and how often.

Examinations can be scheduled out of hours to ensure the minimum of disruption to each business.
