Safed 820x120

The Safety Assessment Federation (SAFed) with the Health and Safety Executive formulated the lift Guidelines now recognised as The Supplementary Test Of In Service Lifts.

safed logoPeriodic inspections based on the SAFed guidlines, along with a regular programme of preventative maintenance, will contribute to the safety and reliability of your lift. Eastern Lift Services recommends these are performed at intervals of 1, 5 & 10 years.

After each examination or test has been completed a electronic certificate will be issued to the owner and must be kept for record purposes.

“Our service packages have the option to include these tests as part of the contract.” read more..
