Maintenance Program

Periodic Inspection according to AS ISO 10535:2011

  • All hoists and rail systems must be inspected every 12 months.
  • The demand for inspection is only related to safety issues and not to maintenance.
  • The rail system must be inspected even when a hoist is not installed.
  • Both rail system and hoist must have a sticker that indicates time for next inspection. The rail system must be clearly marked with maximum safety working load. If a periodic inspection reveals any defects, wear or other damage that jeopardize the safety of the hoist or rail system, the owner should immediately be notified.
  • In the event of immediate risk to safety, the hoist or rail system should immediately be taken out of operation and must not be used again until the abnormality has been rectified.
  • A record of the inspection, including the date and inspection result should be noted in a logbook together with the inspector’s signature (checklist).
  • Defects and damage of importance to the safety of the hoist or rail system which have occurred between inspections and have already led to corrective actions should be entered in the logbook, and reported back to HLS Healthcare.
  • Any observations of importance for the safety of the hoist and rail system should be noted in the logbook which should be retained by the person responsible for the servicing/maintenance of the hoist and rail system.
