What is it?
There is a statutory requirement to perform periodic inspections on certain types of plant or equipment. If an accident occurs when equipment has not been properly maintained, you may not be protected by your Public Liability policy.
Who needs it?
Anyone with plant or machinery on site will require these to be regularly inspected to ensure the safety of all those involved. These inspections can be performed by a competent person sourced locally, or can be undertaken by your insurer.
Examples of plant or equipment requiring regular inspection
