What is an examination scheme for lifting equipment?

An examination scheme involves a thorough examination and would include a
detailed schedule of checks, appropriate examination techniques and testing
requirements, drawn up to suit the operating conditions of a specific item of lifting
equipment. This can help ensure that the resources you spend more accurately
reflect the level of risk. The examination scheme:
should identify the parts of the lifting equipment to be thoroughly examined;
can cover a number of similar items subject to the same operating conditions,
eg all the lifting accessories in a factory which are sufficiently similar in age and
subjected to similar amounts of use;
may often specify periods that are different (longer or shorter) from the ‘periodic’
examination intervals (ie 6 or 12 months), but a longer period must be based on
a rigorous assessment of the risks;
can be drawn up by the user, owner, manufacturer or some other independent
person, as long as they have the necessary competence;
should be reviewed regularly, during each thorough examination and after
any event that may alter the risks associated with the lifting equipment. You
must inform the competent person of any incidents that may affect the risks
associated with the use of the equipment.
