The Importance of Pre-Testing for Your Safety

Date: 05/03/17

Health and safety should never be an afterthought. Especially when you are working with heavy machinery and equipment to be used on construction sites and large-scale projects, you should understand the limitations of the tools at hand. At Ardent we go about our pre-testing processes with diligence, because we know you value the health and safety of your staff as much as we do.

Pre-Testing Routines – All of our plant and equipment is looked at thoroughly before being sent out to clients. We rigorously test to the latest HSE standards and provide the relevant documentation to clarify the safety aspects of your hire.

Specific Testing – Each piece of equipment is different and if you are hiring a telehandler you’ll want to know for sure that it is safe to use for lifting purposes, we test for that. Loaders are tested for carrying capabilities and stability, and so on.

Proactive, not Reactive Testing – The evolution of our vast fleet is based around the upgrading and updating of equipment and machinery to the latest technology. This ensures that your site remains as safe as possible at all times.

To find out more about the processes we go through to fulfil our obligations in terms of pre-testing and the health and safety of our vast fleet of plant hire, contact a member of our team today. You can be assured that whenever you utilise our plant hire service and experience, you’ll be handed a tool to complete your tasks in the safest possible way.
