GA1 Inspection and Certification Experts

On-site GA1 Inspection - Testing - Certification

Irish Health and Safety Legislation places responsibilities on people and companies who own, operate or have control over work equipment that all equipment used in a place of work receives a routine thorough examination and inspection by a competent body such as Safe Lifting Solutions.

Safe Lifting Solutions offers GA1 Inspection, Testing and Certification for Plant Machinery, Lifting Equipment and Height Safety Equipment in accordance with statutory legislation outlined in the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations, 2007.
Upon completion of the inspection, a GA1 form (Report of Thorough Examination) is issued to the customer to certify that the equipment is in good working order and complies with the legislation. GA1 is the approved HSA form for the inspection of lifting equipment as per the General Applications Regulations 2007 to 2020. If defects are identified or the equipment is deemed as not fit for purpose, the customer will be verbally informed and will receive a written report of what defects were identified, as well as what repairs or alterations are required in order for the equipment to comply and meet the necessary safety standards.
Safe Lifting Solutions offers our customers instant access to inspection reports and certificates online via our Online Cert Portal. This portal allows our customers to have 24/7 access and removes the need for paperwork and unnecessary hassle.

Safe Lifting Solutions are here to keep your company and your work equipment compliant, ensuring that you and your employees are able to work safely and efficiently.

Online Cert Portal - Plant Asset Management

Keeping equipment compliant can be a challenge for individuals or companies, which is why we at Safe Lifting Solutions are here to completely manage your lifting equipment and work equipment needs and requirements to ensure your organisation and the individuals within it remain safe and compliant.

We have partnered with CoreRFID for an online GA1 cert system. This state of the art technology allows us to complete immediate on-site reports and send instant communications to the client confirming which site was attended, what job was completed and a full list of inspected items. This system allows the client to keep all GA1 certs in PDF format safely in one place which can be easily accessed 24/7.

Our system automatically creates a Plant / Asset Register for the user, ideal for an overall picture of a company’s equipment. The system automatically generates an email notification for the client 30 days before certs expire, minimising the risk of items falling overdue for inspection. Whether you only require a single item for inspection or need us to completely manage your inspection requirements our technology will ensure that your assets are in order and your legal obligations are fully met.
