Mandatory periodic audits and traceability by SCAN & CONTROL mechanism

When operating, each lifting or personal protective equipment must be checked at least once a year.

What do you risk not having your equipment checked?

Avoiding the audit of your equipment is risking…

  • The accident: using equipment that may be dangerous for the operators.
  • Stopping the construction site: and therefore, incurring financial losses.
  • A ban on using the material.
  • Legal proceedings: due to non-compliance with regulations.

Regulatory reminder
