The Stenhouse difference

Onsite inspections ensure that you keep your people safe, assets are compliant, and your site operational. If 25 years in business has taught us anything, it’s that the best protection from lifting and height safety equipment failure is prevention, and that’s where onsite inspections come in. Coming into your workplace, our trained and highly experienced technicians thoroughly inspect your equipment to ensure it is safe to use to drastically reduce the risk of having equipment failure.

Specific equipment inspection intervals for height safety and lifting equipment are set in the relevant Australian standards and manufacturers’ instructions and must be adhered to. This can vary between 3-12 months, depending on your equipment. To find out the inspection intervals, download our free Inspection Interval Guide.

As per regulations, a competent person must inspect your height safety and lifting equipment. A competent person is one of our service technicians who has the necessary training, experience and acquired knowledge to perform a safety inspection of your equipment correctly.

Our Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) and National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) Accredited Service Technicians have decades of experience testing and repairing auxiliary, lifting and height safety equipment.

The risks of failing to have your equipment inspected are many. Though the real risk is that damaged and expired equipment stay in service. Regular onsite inspections ensure that failed and expired equipment is removed and fixed to ensure your people stay safe, equipment stays compliant, and your site stays operational.
We have the largest team of competent height safety and lifting equipment service technicians in Southeast Queensland. In fact, we have more than double the number of technicians that other companies keep. This means our capability and capacity are second to none, allowing us to help you with any size inspection, even on short notice.
We will provide you with a detailed inspection report at the end of each onsite inspection. You can access all reporting, and your height and safety equipment certifications through our live Asset Management System, Radify PRO. Designed and developed by Stenhouse Service Technicians, you can view, manage, and customise your reports and access images from onsite inspections to further train your staff around the causes of failure to prevent further failures and replacement costs.
