During this unprecedented time, we have received a query on the position of statutory inspections and the requirement of PSSR and LOLER examinations.
These inspections and examinations are still required, compliance is necessary at this point in time.
Our friends at SAFed and the inspection company personnel are deemed “Key Workers” although special measures may be in place i.e. 6m distancing rules rather than 2m, etc.
SAFed are constantly in touch with the HSE and they are issuing notices regarding updates due to COVID-19, for further information and to keep up to date please follow this link http://www.safed.co.uk/covid-19-guidance-for-safed-members/
