The service has grown from strength to strength through all sectors of industry. Companies either large organisations or small enterprises currently use our services to carry out regular examinations of the full range of lifting equipment.

Our thorough examination, thorough inspection of lifting equipment can include dynamic SWL testing and Light Load Testing of mechanical hand chain blocks, lever hoist, tirfors, etc.

This unique service will ensure the correct operation the braking mechanism through the full operation at maximum capacity and minimum capacity ensuring correct in use operation.


Many companies will perform at best a 'visual inspection' on lifting products.

Worlifts always recommend a dynamic brake test at both the safe working load and light load (approx 5% of machine capacity) is performed on all lifting equipment with a braking mechanism when carrying out any examination, inspection or repair to confirm it is functioning correctly. Our unique test vehicles can carry out tests of this type, the test ensures the lifting items works correctly through its full cycle operation, this is even more essential when testing on site as you may have no equipment history, making a dynamic test the only test that should be carried out.

On a final note, visual inspections without operating the equipment really tell the inspector very little.

You cannot tell the condition of the internal working parts, a chain block or lever hoist can be badly bashed from the outside and yet still work perfectly, while a brand new lifting block may have been over loaded in its first operation causing the load sprocket to be damaged or the braking mechanism damaged, both of these conditions can only 100% be verified by dynamic testing of your lifting equipment, dynamic testing of your lifting gear and dynamic testing of your lifting tackle.
