Victorian Testing and Inspection Services conducts load testing of new or existing lifting and rigging equipment to ensure suitability for use and safety in accordance with Australian Standards.
VTS will conduct tests of your lifting equipment in-house or on-site, ensuring minimal disruption to operations.
The range of equipment that can be tested includes slings, lifting beams, shackles, fabricated lifting appliances and height safety equipment.
The process involves testing the equipment at specified loads for a specific duration to ensure it functions as intended. It can also involve testing on the various components of the equipment.
Load tests are required on lifting equipment prior to going into service, following repairs or servicing and at regular maintenance period intervals.
